So we could introduce some mechanism specific for such situation, like
some hook that save-buffer would call or something.  Annotations just
aren't that mechanism, they exist to add text to the buffer before it
is written.

rmail-write-region-annotate uses its first argument to deduce that it
is being called to write the entire buffer.  Why couldn't the same
logic be used for the message?
