I know you are not.  You are opposing the current media annotations draft, which does, for good pragmatic reasons.  I'm trying to understand why :-(, and "it looks tidier in one model" is one reason, but not very strong, IMHO.  Whereas low-impedance matching to what we find in existing practice is a good reason for a clear expression of copyright (see TCOP in ID3, Copyright in EXIF and MP4, and so on), IMHO.
