That's exactly what views are supposed to be good for.
Any way views could be improved in your opinion?

Is it not sufficient to have a string valued feature
somewhere where you can keep this information?

Anyway, I don't have strong opinions about this.  I
think I wouldn't want to use an annotator that modifies
my data (as opposed to creating new metadata), even
if it's just appending.  You may well have annotators
that work differently on longer documents than shorter
ones (summarization, document categorization etc).
But that's just my opinion.
