I'm thinking of what would be the minimum useful information, the goal
being to have a human user to specify the meaning/disambiguate of some
terms, or persons (in foaf case). I think in some cases @instanceof
could be omitted and recovered by who is concerned by dereferencing
@about. I'll think of some detailed examples.

For the moment yes, only at DOM, think at integrating
"at-the-glass(dom)" with ther RDFa aware extensions, the DOM is
transient, but other extensions can pick up the annotations and save
them (i.e. a RDFa aware PiggyBank).

I also look into doing this annotation within the editing area of
WYSIWYG html editors in web pages, such that you can annotate with
RDFa your blog entry prior to publishing; so the persistence would be
delegated to the blog engine.
