Annotating just a selected area is not trivial:

- What about multi-units components: for instance what about renaming 2 of 5 units when one unit is the unit handling the power pins?
this is the best way to break a design.
- What about complex hierarchies: selecting an area selects in fact as many areas as sheet instances.

- and what about multi-units components in complex hierarchies.

Good luck with block annotation.
