Hi Tantek, everyone else ...

As you know, an issue was raised off-list over whether we would need
to track additional data elements in order for these annotations to
actually be useful. I have documented the concerns as an open issue in
the wiki page, and also noted that we need to be careful to note what
the "win" is of each of these changes. In particular, are they useful
on their own, or are they all interdependent?

I have also attempted to update the wiki with some of these thoughts.
