Hi,

This is a QA Review comment for "Image Annotation on the Semantic Web"

Do you refer to context in this paragraph?

[[[
Annotating images without having a specific goal or task in mind is  
often not cost effective: after the target application has been  
developed, it turns out that images have been annotated using the  
wrong type of information, or on the wrong abstraction level, etc.

"Annotated using the wrong type of information" is not necessary  
true. It always depends on the context. One particular annotation  
might be very useful or completely useless not because of the nature  
or the type of information but because of the context of expressing  
this annotation.

In Front of a church, one might see
	- an architecture
	- a piece of history
	- a memory of family wedding
	- a religious involvement
	- a symbol of obscurantism

all with valid associated annotations in their specific context.

The text of the paragraph seems to imply that the developer should  
only use "objective" information for metadata.
