Annotations are being deprecated and the original bug report is nearly six
years old.  As as variation of the old adage, I would suggest that "Since
no-one appears to mind it's broke, don't fix it".  The danger of making a fix
in readline, of course, is that you break annotations elsewhere, where it's
more important.
