Well, maybe I've missed something in this remark, but I meant 
rather to have these "finer-grained" annotation properties
in the OWL vocabulary and namespace in order to make sure
that whoever around the world uses these features, uses the
same vocabulary to express them (especially useful for the
uncertainty representation case, if we want to allow for 
possible re-use of "uncertain" ontologies). They would bear a 
kind of universally attributed semantics then, however, this 
semantics would not be intended to mix with the model-theoretic 
semantics of OWL at all...

It would of course be quite tricky to decide the respective 
set of these annotation property extensions in order to keep 
them intuitive enough and practical at the same time. Moreover, 
the set should be as small as possible, general enough to cover 
as much use cases as possible and specific enough to restrict the 
application of particular annotation types... Tricky, but perhaps 
not impossible and maybe even worthwhile...

Cheers,
Vit
