Hello, I was reading the ARIA annotations issue
<https://github.com/w3c/aria/issues/749> and the linked Microsoft Position
Paper on Annotations
<https://www.w3.org/2014/04/annotation/submissions/Microsoft_Position_Paper_on_Annotations.pdf>
.

All I can say is, yes, we need this. With perhaps a few minor tweaks, the
proposal is already pretty solid. It would solve a lot of real problems in
group document editors. This would be very helpful for end users.

I'd like to see annotations sooner than the 1.4 time frame, and look
forward to implementing in Chrome, and working with platform API specs and
AT vendors as well.

I propose we get this on the agenda for an upcoming meeting.

Thank you,
Aaron
