Hi Riccardo,

 From what I could tell, there is no way to toggle the readOnly option 
dynamically after the annotator has been loaded.

However, I did accomplish the method of reloading annotations (for 
another use case) by executing the Store._onLoadAnnotationsMethod 
upon a certain onclick.

Also, of note, I was able to loop through the annotations and 
temporarily remove annotations 

My use case for this functionality is a bit different from what you 
intend to do, but it does contain the basics of loading additional 
annotations and deleting annotations on the fly.
