Looks like you save the "hidden" flag in this styling file, do you 
serialize the styling file every time
a user changes the hidden setting for an annotation?

The Cas Editor offers a util class you could use to come up with 
different default colors, this code is actually
based on code we used over at one of our swing UIMA UI tools (forgot 
which one).

You would need to implement your own CasDocumentProvider, there you can 
reuse your existing code to load a CAS, to find and load a type system, and
to store preferences per type system preferences. There you could also 
place migration code, to initialize the new Cas Editor settings from
an existing map file.

Do you also have settings in Text Marker which need to be stored per 
session and per type system?
