I'd prefer to see it at the top, but I'm not sure if that's just my familiarity. I use annotate on many other projects, all top-annotated, and when I'm not interested in the details, I find it easy to ignore (like ignoring big license blurbs at the top of files :-) ). Here's a large project that I use it with, for example: https://github.com/cyclestreets/cyclescape/tree/staging/app/models

But top or bottom is just a detail. Having it is, as @zere says, much easier than fishing around via psql to see what attributes are available on each model, especially given our confusing model vs table naming differences, and attributes that appear neither in the models nor the model tests.
