Does agave allow you to push annotations arround without the sequence? 
In a web service environment we may not want to push the dna for chrom I 
arround even though we may want to know all features within a region of 
it. I am format agnostic. The important things are that:

a) any format can potentialy be easily made and consumed by lots of 
services/clients (including our own)

b) the web services are sliced at the right level of granularity
