We (Bioconductor) would be interested in hosting contributed
annotation data packages.  Right now the group here in Seattle is
fairly busy preparing for the BioC2006 conference (next week!).  If
you'd like to contribute the data package let us know (use the email
listed in the instructions for contributing a BioC package).

It sounds like you might just have an environment object and not a
package.  Creating a data package from that isn't too hard, but it
will require looking over the Writing R Extensions Manual...
