I would even go further to join the DLTK ui and core plugins, or is 
there a motivation not to do it?

We can improve the existing Cas Editor views to handle this, maybe add a 
new one to work with many overlapping
annotations.

That sounds more like a new view, which should not be part of the Cas 
Editor itself. The Cas Editor
supports adding of new views which can visualize and change an aspect of 
the CAS opened in the
editor.

I guess it will be easy for you to port these views to the Cas Editor. 
It is actually very simple, an ICasEditor has
a method to retrieve an ICasDocument which can retrieve the CAS object, 
and has a few method to track
changes done to the CAS.
If you create a new annotation, you need to call a method on the 
ICasDocment to signal that to other views.
