Thank you Robert!

I've just seen what I think is the new draft (february 5th). I will go through it! In the meantime, I'm wondering what you think on the problem of keeping all the annotations of a text in RDF vs. keeping them in a separate store and bind them to entities in the RDF.

The use case I have in mind is: imagine a book, say The Lord of the Rings. Assume we want to annotate domain information in RDF (characters, actions, etc..) as well as linguistic (or "librarian")-oriented annotations: paragraphs, lines, pages (in order to make citations..), down to lemmas and so on..

We could follow the FRBR model and keep in an RDF graph the domain information AND some librarian information. But what about the annotations on text as -- say -- links between a character and the lines on which they appear?Should these be RDF statements? What about the the problem of text duplications in annotations which are not independent (e.g. lemmas and sentences)?
Have you (as a community) a definite idea on this issue or perhaps is something which is still under observation?

My impression is that when someone is using UIMA, the integration of AO with Clerezza-UIMA could give more comfort wrt NiF.
