So. I think things got tangled here. The issue title doesn't seem to 
state any need of putting the target *inside* the annotation, but 
rather than reverse.

@csarven if you're wanting to include additional statements about the 
target in your RDFa, please do. :smile: I don't think anything in the 
model needs to change to support that. You're using RDF anyhow, so 
knock yourself out! :wink: 

However, I do think there's still a non-model topic here about how to 
embed annotations inside the target document...but that would depend 
on the format of the document (let's not assume it's HTML), etc.

Riffing off @tilgovi's DPUB / EPUB comment, we do have the use cases 
for this "embedded annotation" scenario and we *should* for our own 
sanity limit the scope to a handful of formats and scenarios and map 
Web Annotation into the right location within those formats (EPUB, 
HTML, Link header references, MIME, package formats, etc)

Right now, that seems like good wiki exploration fodder with a 
possible NOTE as output and perhaps another serialization document but
 focused on RDFa (for HTML)--since HTML is likely the most frequently 
used format (for us) and @csarven's here to help use do that. :wink:
