Sorry, it took some time to answer. I was travelling and the mail got 
lost in spam. I'm starting to update the protocol document now but 
trying to have some holidays too.

I have done simple experiments with the server up to now treating 
bookmarks pretty much as annotations. Mainly I have concentrated in the 
bookmark files up to now as that was more new. I think it would be good 
to discuss what else is needed in the ubimarks protocol. Maybe a 
property to define chunks of bookmarks outside the topics (like the 
files) but that may be different for different users and some other stuff.

There are others who are interested in collaborating with this and 
promised to help with changes to the Annotea server as Eric is pretty 
busy. I'll do the first version and send mail to you all hoping to have 
some discussion.

Happy holidays!
