It doesn't impede MI development, so you could think of it as orthogonal.
Clearly it can eventually be removed with the rest of annotations.

I would just use it to notify Emacs that an application was multi-threaded and
display the selected thread number in the mode-line.  It won't work if
Vladimir's patch is approved in it's original form (Apr 26: [RFA] Report the
main thread) but it now looks like any change made there will be just to
MI which won't affect this patch.

I'm not sure what you mean, or how I would register such an observer.
All other annotations are done this way and, unlike MI, annotations don't
have their own interpreter but just mark up CLI.
