Hi all,

It would be great to get your thoughts on this.  - I'm working on a project called CHARMe, where we are using the Open Annotation data model to make annotations of climate science and earth observation datasets.  A number of the use cases we have can be implemented by applying OA without any extension.  However,  we have a requirement to associate a research domain with any given annotation.  This item would be a restricted list of terms.  It is analogous but not the same as the concept of an oa:Motivation.   It could for example include terms such as like land cover, sea surface temperature or sea ice extent.   There a number of different vocabularies in the Earth Sciences that we could apply here.  My question is, would this be best expressed as an explicit new property of an annotation or as an annotation body?

Cheers,
Phil
