[BioC] illumina annotation packages vs. bgx manifests

Hi Michal,
I'm not completely certain what you are asking.  The Array_Address_ID is 
the probe identifier used in the illuminaRatv1ProbeID.db annotation 
package so you should link using that identifier.  If you are going to 
use the .bgx file for annotation, you don't really need an annotation 
package at all.
