Hi Paolo,
Oh like that idea of annotations a lot!  I don't want to get ahead of myself here but assuming the Open Data Directory CG is happy to publish the glossary as LOD from the w3.org namespace, we can readily incorporate a new feature supporting the open annotations spec as nanopublications using Callimachus (the FLOSS data platform that the Open Data Directory is built on).  That would be a nice exemplar and certainly a good demonstration of LOD in the wild.

Thank you for the suggestion and we'll report back on progress this summer.  Maybe you can test the future implementation & see if the workflow makes sense?

The editors wish to also thank members of the Government Linked Data Working Group with special thanks to the reviewers and contributors: Thomas Baker, Hadley Beeman, Richard Cyganiak, Michael Hausenblas, Sandro Hawke, Benedikt Kaempgen, James McKinney, Marios Meimaris, Jindrich Mynarz and Dave Reynolds who diligently iterated the W3C Linked Data Glossary in order to create a foundation of terms upon which to discuss and better describe the Web of Data.  If there is anyone that the editors inadvertently overlooked in this list, please accept our apologies.
