Hi Alistair,

I really don't buy these arguments. If a property has an obvious 
'direction' (for example skos:broader) I think it is clearer to have the 
label giving an idea of this direction. When I learned SKOS I was really 
bothered by this ambiguity of skos:broader ("is the first argument the 
most general concept or the least general one?"). Notice of course that 
some properties (the 'symmetric' ones) would be less concerned.

Anyway, my main objection to your proposal was that it has a class 
(Annotation) and a property (annotation) with almost the same label.

Cheers,

Antoine
