I try to keep distinction between **data model**, API or UI

As I understand each Annotation has logical relation with a List of 
annotations (in this case ordered) and pages have no other purpose 
than split this list into small chunks when accessed over network

I see this question possibly helps with clarifying it:

If we add more annotations to the list, can they possibly move between
 pages? Or annotation has permanent relationship with a page which can
 only change by intentional operation: "Move this annotation from this
 page to this page" and once again not as side effect of adding 
annotations to the whole list. Actually in such case, one should never
 insert annotations directly to the list but always interact only with
 pages and use the List as collection of pages, not collection of 
annotations! Pages become here collections of annotations.
