I'm not sure what you mean by not having annotation axioms?

We do have annotation axioms, but only for entities and anonymous  
individuals. No one, AFAICT, is suggesting removing them. I believe  
that what was said, by Boris, is that we shouldn't implement his  
earlier suggestion to resolve issue-16 by making all annotations be  
separate axioms, because axiom annotations would then require an  
axiom (the one to be annotated) within an axiom (the annotation  
axiom) -- a potential problem for the RDF serialisation (at least).
