Hi Lutz,
I am not sure I understand completely what you are doing as I see only an
abstract example.

I would probably use a SpecificResource
http://www.openannotation.org/spec/core/specific.html#Specific
in combination with a FragmentSelector
http://www.openannotation.org/spec/core/specific.html#FragmentSelector
therefore I would use a oa:hasSource rather than oa:hasScope.

A typical use of oa:hasScope is when you are annotating an image (with a
URI) displaying in a webpage.
The oa:hasSource is the image, the selector is for instance a
oa:SvgSelector and the oa:hasScope is the webpage.

Hope it helps,
Paolo
