[UseCases] Call for Use Cases

Dear all,

This is an open call for use cases regarding annotation capabilities.  In
particular, the Web Annotation Working Group is requesting the submission
of real world user stories describing current or projected functionality
for annotation based systems.  The stories should describe a user's intent
and their activities towards some purpose in the use of the annotation
system.  Please keep in mind that the user may be a software agent, such as
describing the federation of annotation systems.

It would be helpful and appreciated if the stories were tagged with one or
more of the following categories:

model:  The user story has a direct impact on the underlying model for
describing an annotation in a structured format.

protocol:  The user story has a direct impact on the interaction between
different systems over the network, such as between client and server, or
server and server.

interface:  The user story has a direct impact on how a client system would
interact with a host web browser environment, such as the rendering or
anchoring of annotations.

We especially encourage submissions in the protocol and interface
categories, as the use cases from the Open Annotation community group have
provided a very solid basis for the model.

User stories should be sent to public-annotation@w3.org, or added directly
to the working group's wiki: https://www.w3.org/annotation/wiki/Use_Cases

The user stories will be collected and analyzed to provide requirements for
the respective deliverables from the Working Group, along with other
submissions and discussion.

Thank you in advance for your submissions, and please feel free to
circulate this call for use cases to other potentially interested parties.
