How many representations are needed?

The way you've described it almost sounds like three:
1) Stored
2) In memory, for annotator
3) In memory, for your UI

How often do you have to go back and forth between 2 and 3? Whenever the
edit button is clicked, the editor is saved, etc? Before or after the
annotation is shown in a viewer?

Does annotator.editor.subscribe('save') help?
