I fully agree.  The text now reads:

     Annotating images without having a specific context, goal or task
     in mind is often not cost effective: after the target application
     has been developed, it may turn out that images have been
     annotated with information that insufficiently covers the new
     requirements.

Please feel free to comment on the new text.

Thanks for spotting this,
