Hi,

I don't know if this has come up before, I couldn't find mention of  
it in the archives but I'm not entirely certain that I'm covering the  
right lists in my search.

Basically I'm working on a product that uses the Annotea protocol.  
Given a resource, it'll retrieve all the annotations and display them  
all, including their bodies. The problem I'm having is that querying  
for that resource will return a list of pointers to annotations and  
their bodies, after which I'll need to GET all the annotations, and  
then all their bodies. That's a lot of HTTP requests, in our case it  
could easily translate to hundreds of them.

The Annotea Protocol WD (or whatever its equivalent in modern W3C  
process is) doesn't offer the option to retrieve all annotations and  
their bodies in the first query, or failing that to at least get  
annotation and body together. I was wondering if someone out there  
had implemented something like that, or had ideas about it.

Thanks!

As best as I can make out, neither statement is not always correct.
