Store user annotations in the EPUB file
User annotations - bookmarks, highlights, notes, etc... to the best of my knowledge do not stay with the EPUB book but are proprietary to each reader. So if I change readers and open a book that I marked up in another reader my annotations will be lost.
This is not so much of a concern for the immediate future as I don't intend to change readers often, but say in 5 or 10 years I go to re-read a book and I'm using a totally new system/platform/reader - to loose all my annotations from the last time I read it is unacceptable.

Readers do not modify the ePub file therefore the direct answer is no. However Kobo keeps a database for kepub. Perhaps it is of some use for notes. Amazon books have a sidefile for this. See https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/AZW#Auxiliary_Files
