root.AddAnnotation(new MyAnnotation("T1"));
root.AddAnnotation(new MyAnnotation("T2"));

IEnumerable<object> annotationList;
annotationList = root.Annotations(typeof(MyAnnotation));
foreach (object ma in annotationList)
    output.Append(((MyAnnotation)ma).Tag + Environment.NewLine);
output.Append("----" + Environment.NewLine);

IEnumerable<object> stringAnnotationList;
stringAnnotationList = root.Annotations(typeof(string));
