That's an interesting idea.  I agree that this can apply to all roster items 
(the only reason to detach it from the roster itself would just be that your 
client doesn't always want to pull down the annotations.)

But you know what would also be good... being able to send these annotations 
from user to user, the same way roster items are traded.  Then you could do 
things like sending another user more information about how to use a 
transport, which could be handy for support type roles as well.

Another thought... we're really talking about a metadata overlay here, where 
information from the user overlays the information from the actual entity.  
Whatever we do here might be good to plan for being more than simple strings.
