Hi Rob,

I'm having some trouble following the logic of how it is orthogonal to
 #8 . Access control requires Authentication and Authorization both of
 which require an "of what/who" question to be answered. The answer of
 the question easily overlaps with Audience. 

Specifically, you propose that the group with access to an annotation 
will be different than the audience for that annotation. This may be 
true but only in cases where the set of entities with access contains 
the set of entities that are the audience. Otherwise it becomes a bit 
silly as the annotations will never be viewed by the intended 

Other than that nitpick I'm +1 for *not* accepting this issue:
* Agree that this is out of scope (but I also think #8 was out of 
scope so there may be a consistency of approach issue that needs to 
* Agree that it is not an issue for the annotation model (this is some
 other modeling problem)
* Don't agree that is *perfectly* orthogonal to #8 (it's more like a 
bridge between #8 and #19 ).



P.S. I know we agreed to recommend schema:audience but should we 
provide a mapping between it and dc:audience for the community using 
the latter (i.e., does #8 need some additional text a la #18 's
