FWIW, I've often wanted for vc-annotate to use a completely different
approach, where the buffer's text content is just the actual file's
content and the extra annotations are only displayed indirectly
(e.g. via a background color, tooltip text, margin text, or in-buffer
(but togglable by attribute)).

We already kind of have this possibility, though (via vc-annotate-toggle-annotation-visibility). It's not enough because dates and names are useful, and even having tooltips won't cut it.

The main stopper, I think, is the "togglable by attribute" UI (well, and also the implementations for extracting more granular data for each backend).

Also by using the unannotated file's text in buffer, we could enable the
normal font-lock rules, so we as to combine the normal font-lock
highlighting with the background-color of vc-annotate.

That would be nice.
