Booxtor, I appreciate your input, but still, the brute facts are as follows:
1. Kindle opens it, Acrobat opens it, all other readers that i have open it. Same holds for archive.org files. So this is doable, with proper care, and that is not given on the part of the maker.
2. The fact that a third-party component is faulty does not mean that vendor is not liable for the overall product. Imagine what'd happen if a car maker said "well, we do not produce these paints so we do not take the responsibility for your car getting rusty". It is an interesting technical detail that Adobe SDK has been used, but hey, that's Onyx's problem, not customers'.
3. Pdftk is of no use here because the file is locked.

BTW, are there any predictions on when the annotation-merging bugs are fixed?

Well, no. I don't sell anything. Do you, by any chance?
