Tacking #t=XmYYs to the end of a YouTube link will direct it to start from X:YY into the video, but can I do something similar to have the annotations off when using the link?

More generally, what arguments can I pass the YouTube player after a hash (#)?

I use the third-party Youtube Clean site to link to videos without disturbances. Just add "clean" to the URL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0http://www.youtubeclean.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0.

You can't turn off the annotations in the URL but you can in the embed link by adding iv_load_policy=3 to the source code. Source.

For your second question, check out this link.

iv_load_policy=3 also works on embedded links. For example:
