Yes. I just tried to make the issue of complex regions explicit.

Addressing a moving spatial region in a video is quite complex because it requires the annotation client to track moving objects in a video. We are not going to implement this. For us it would be fine to be able to address a fixed spatial region; so it would be the same technical solution as for still image annotation...
