Having implemented an annotation server on top of some other server system  
a decade or so ago, I recall it being pretty easy. If I had a bit of time  
now I guess I could do it with Opera Unite - the hard part isn't the  
server, but the user interaction. I can probably do that with userJS,  
although I am not sure about creating Xpointers (i.e. that would require  
me actually learning new stuff).

If anyone is interested in it as a project I'll happily explain better  
what I am thinking.
