Hi,
Could modelReferences be understood as perspectives of people who will
create these annotations (assuming that more then one person can create
annotations for one WSDL element)? Or should the person who annotates WSDL
element by multiple modelReferences keep in mind that these should be
consistent? 

In the first case, it should be clear which modelReferences will be used for
the processing. For the second case, may be there could be a consistency
check provided by an annotator tool already...
