I thought so at first, too. But then I thought about it a little more.

The person who publishes the video can apply a list of "favourite
scenes" as a description straight for the video. A bit like an RSS
feed. Then it's "source supplied" still, because the publisher
associates it. It's more like a "director's favourite scenes"
actually.

It would also be possible for somebody else on a different Web server
to publish their favourite scenes for a video hosted by somebody else.
Then it's user supplied, but scalable.

All types of annotations actually follow this "rule": they can all be
regarded both as source-supplied and user-supplied. So, yes, they
really are a third type of metadata in your list.

Not sure what consequences that has on the media annotations group
work, but worth a thought...

Cheers,
Silvia.
