ER - Ability to place annotation above a particular model or model item

Is it possible to place leaderline above a particular model or model item instead of putting it as 'Always on Top' in Vuforia Studio?
Customer uses leaderline in annotation to indicate which annotation is for which part(model). The annotation and its leaderline looks like below:

Customer tried to use "Always on Top" option, it does make the endpoint place "above" the green part at different angles but since it places "above" everything. So it leads to other problems. E.g: When another part B and its annotation become above the part A, then due to the "Always on Top" option, the A's annotation would look like pointing to B's part. Causing another confusion.

Customer requirement:
1) They need part A's annotation always above Part A's surface only, so that they can always see that is part A's annotation from different angles.
2) If Part B becomes above Part A, then Part A's annotation should be covered up and only Part B's annotation displays.

With that being said, customer wants annotation to above a particular part instead of above everthing of which "Always on Top" option does.
Is there a way or any suggestion to achieve customer requirement?
