Hi Rob,
that is a good point.

As I would like to record the location of the 'annotation creation', it
would probably be better to have something like oa:annotatedAtLocation then?
That would be more consistent with the OA model. Unfortunately it seems
less in line with how others do it :/

I see in PROV the property: **http://www.w3.org/ns/prov#atLocation
but I am still not sure the definition ("The Location of any resource.") is
compatible with what I am trying to do.

Maybe we can ask to the PROV folks?

Paolo
