I am changing _annFormat so it won't overwrite an existing Border or C entry in
the dict; that just makes the other parameters irrelevant unless we have some
more or less complicated scheme to use them as overrides on the existing Border
entry (either synthesized or provided). However, that would require Border to be
provided as a simple list or tuple and not as a string or PDFArray so it's
probably simpler to use provided items verbatim.
