Most comment types have a rect property which provides you their location directly. Others have a quads array, or an array of point objects. It all depends on the type of comment...

It really depends on the type of annotation and how you define the "x y position" of a 2-dimensional object exactly. Some can be quite large and shaped irregularly. What types of annotations will you be dealing with?

All annotations have a "rect" property. It can't be used to set coordinates in many cases, but it's always there for getting the coordinates.
