Destroying the annotator from a plugin is a bit strange, but maybe not
totally ridiculous. The reason I say it's a bit strange is because calling
it will also invoke a destroy method on your plugin. If all is implemented
as it should be, your plugin shouldn't be around to toggle the annotator
back on.

I would ask how you're constructing the annotator to begin with. Are you
invoking the Annotator constructor directly, or using the jquery plugin
interface where you call .annotator() on a jquery object?
