Converting annotations stored in the PDF into open annotation standard


(As suggested, reposting here from dev mailing list:, and one
existing reply:

Does anyone know of any existing code/project which would help
converting annotations which are already in the PDF (like those made
by Preview) into open annotation standard?

So PDF.js allows to extract annotations, but the annotations are not
really anchored on the PDF, they just have an icon. On the other side,
highlights are not part of extracted annotations, but it seems they
are really added as a colored box to the PDF content. So how would one
access them and convert them to open annotation standard?

I opened a slightly related issue on PDF.js tracker:
