I don't understand. If i don't have any reference point, how DAS client
know where annotations should be placed?  

Document on page http://www.biodas.org/servers/LDAS.html told me :
"1.reference point information: This type of information, which is needed
both for reference servers and annotation servers, lists the names and
lengths of all the landmarks that will be used to describe the positions
of annotations."
