Another example in the same vein: the ResearchSpace project has a need for Bookmarks with both Description *and* Title 
(the latter is initailly copied from the bookmarked item, if it has something that can be recognized as a Title).
The current spec http://openannotation.org/spec/core/#InlineBody using ContentAsText allows only one string.

ContentAsText has the benefit that it can represent various opaque data structures (e.g. SVG).
But that is also a disadvantage, since it steers away from established RDF structures.
