Can this not be resolved without compromising monotonicity?

Assume we always serialize the s p o.

In the case of an axiom that has no annotation we proceed as documented.
In the case where we have only an axiom with annotation we proceed as  
documented, except that we add the s p o triple)
In the case where there are both we add an annotation that says:  
"There is an unnannotated version of this axiom".
