Hello,
If you are interested to propose bibliography annotations, I would 
suggests to also explore http://www.bibtex.org/

(In general, adopting BibTex will really increase the annotated content 
as many publishers use it.)

For example the bibtex entry
@Article{journals/aim/Sloman99,
   title =    "Review of Affective Computing",
   author =    "Aaron Sloman",
   journal =    "AI Magazine",
   year =     "1999",
   number =    "1",
   volume =    "20",
   url = "http://dblp.uni-trier.de/db/journals/aim/aim20.html#Sloman99",
   pages =    "127--133",
}
would translate to

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ScholarlyArticle">
<span itemprop="author">Aaron Sloman</span>
  (<span itemprop="dateCreated" content="..">1999</span>)
<span itemprop="name">Review of Affective Computing</span>,
<span itemprop="journal">AI Magazine</span>
....
</div>

Regards,
Adrian
