The annotations aren't layers, but a special class of pdf objects,  
which, as Matthew Leingang noted, have attributes useful to annotation.

In order to get them handled as normal objects you have to post- 
process them in some way --- Aandi Inston's Quite a Box of Tricks has  
a feature specifically for this.

Probably the desired behaviour could be achieved by converting  
the .pdf to a .eps using a program which understood the annotations  
and would place them in the .ps stream as normally drawn/rendered
