Another thought. If I select a text fragment in a document, through the
SpecificResource we know what the document is.
However, I could still use hasContext to point to external resources that
helped me in the annotation process.

Example 1: I look at a page talking about Obama. They state he is xx years
old. I could say that is wrong hasContext <wikipediapage about Obama>.
Example 2: I look at a picture of a telescope image and there is an
unidentified object. I could say: that is X ... hasContext <another image
with different angle>

This is opening to further integration discussions though as there are
other efforts related to evidence/warrant representation.
