I would say the function, because I see annotations as closely tied to nodes
that they annotate.  If we only had an axis, we could get annotations but it
would be harder to tie them to their nodes.  That would not be so if
annotation::* only returns annotations associated with the context node, but
that seems too limited to need an axis.  Otherwise I like the idea of an
axis but think that there should be a function anyway.
