Hi Igor- We avoided adding annotation to DiffBind because of the other packages that specialize in this. They don't take a DiffBind object directly, but you can always retrieve any peak set as a GRanges object, which is commonly used in Bioconductor packages. The main packages I use for annotation and gene set enrichment are ChIPpeakAnno and chipenrich. Peaksets are returned as GRanges objects by default by dba.peakset() (with bRetrieve=TRUE), dba.report() (for differentially bound peaks), and dba.overlap() (for peaks that do or don't overlap between peak sets; you can also use dbaPlotVenn() with bReturnPeaksets=TRUE).
