I found color answer:

\pdfannot % generic annotation
width 10cm % the dimension of the annotation can be controlled
height 0cm % via <rule spec>; if some of dimensions in
depth 4cm % <rule spec> is not given, the corresponding
% value of the parent box will be used.
/Subtype /Text % text annotation
% /Open true % if given then the text annotation will be opened
/T (Note)
/C [0 0 .9]
/Contents % text contents
(This is text note)

where /C stays for color.

Adobe knows a bunch of different types of Comments/Drawing markups tools
(as in attached file)

There is a really weird modification of the above ansatz: replacing
/Subtype /Text
by /Subtype /Stamp
produces nothing but a crossed rectangle  in AR7 (+note). However if opened
in Acrobat 7 rectangle is filled with the stamp "Draft". Saving this
file as (without any modification "Save" does not work ) and opening
in AR7 produces the same Stamp.
