This is a very timely thread for the Web Annotation working group in the W3C!

We are looking to replace the Dublin Core types[1][2] with the richer schema.org<http://schema.org/> types, but are missing a nice replacement for dctypes:Text.  Having a subclass of CreativeWork specifically for textual content, to mirror VideoObject, ImageObject and so forth, would make this a slam dunk.

Many thanks for your consideration!
