Multivalent can do this after a fashion:


Not sure how well its annotations work though.

To be fair, one can read in a .pdf using pdfpages and pdflatex and  
annotate on top of it using the appropriate commands --- you have to  
calculate positions by hand, but it's not that bad, and in many ways  
is more flexible for some sorts of work.

Adobe Reader for Linux would be able to annotate .pdfs which were  
encrypted and signed and enabled for this using Adobe Acrobat (I think  
you need the Professional version for this).
