Adding support of annotation in vector tile packages. This idea is submitted on behalf of one of our important customers.  

We know that labels are now supported in vector tile packages, but my client thinks it is not enough for their current work.  For example, when the data comes from AutoCAD, the DWG annotations will be imported as annotation feature class, which are hardly converted to labels stored in feature attribute perfectly .  So , this requirement comes.

Agreed.

I've spent a bit of time looking for work-arounds, like converting the annotation to a feature class with the 'FeatureOutlineMasks' function in the cartography toolbox; however, am unable to apply symbolody from the annotation features or layer files created from said annotation features.

Anybody else find a work around?
