Markup = annotation.  Taking existing data and adding stuff to make it 
more useful, without disrupting existing uses of that data (and without 
creating the size/maintenance issues you get from duplication.) 

One of the rationales for this project is to make more effective use of 
bandwidth, which makes me lean against duplication somewhat, but it may 
indeed be the appropriate way.

Cheers, and thanks,
