Yes.  If you want to edit an annotation then use
`bookmark-edit-annotation' instead of `bookmark-show-annotation'.
But that advice doesn't help for automatic showing of annotations -
that is always show-only, not edit.

I suppose it would make sense to provide a key binding for the edit
command in the show-only buffer, or perhaps let you choose to have
automatically shown annotations open for editing.

I'll think about it.  I don't use annotations, myself, and I've done
little more with that feature than what is in vanilla Emacs.  The
main thing I did (recently) was to allow for using Org mode (or any
other) and allow for an annotation to be external (in a separate file).
