I did put forward a group of proposals to close the issue in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-owl-wg/2008Jan/0106.html a
subset of which allow annotations on annotations, which requires only a
very small change to the functional syntax.  The situation in the RDF
syntax would be a bit more complex, but I believe that simply using the
same treatment as for single-triple axioms would work (the annotated
annotation would be reified and the annotations on "hung" off the
reification node).
