@BigBlueHat Why should groups (or even access control) only be done 
via the protocol? What about annotations that are stored locally, or 
exchanged offline, or otherwise not accessed via the protocol (which 
not every UA may use)? How is a client supposed to know how to treat 
those, if there's no property contained in the annotation itself?

It's true that several people have that opinion. I am not yet 
convinced that a related property shouldn't be in the model, as well, 
and I've stated the technical reasons why.

Saying "some people agree with me" doesn't tell us tell us the 
technical rationale.
