Hello Matt,

i agree, a linked 3d text isn't usefull and first i was thinking about a 
link to a text in the text editor too. But for me it is not close enough 
to the object or you need a button at "Annotation" that will show or 
create the linked text object for reading or creating the annotation.

That would be very cool!
