I give a +1 to @shepazu  's proposal. basin on my comment in #112 

By now ... motivation has near 0 value for the computer and a vague 
clue for to the user, indicating why another user chose to create the 
annotation... (by now ... motivation seems to be nothing more than a 
simple tag ...)

In my opinion motivation values should come from a controlled 
vocabulary, which define clear meanings for the machines (e.g. see for
 example the simple embedded tagging vs. semantic tagging problem).

I do support the idea that the Motivation should encapsulate the 
concrete relationships between body, target and external resources. 
In my opinion, the old definition/explanation of annotation stating 
'the body is most frequently somehow "about" the target' starts to get

With the introduction of "roles", the specification starts to 
emphasize that: "The exact nature of this relationship changes 
according to the intention of the annotation". (in which I suppose 
that the intention is what we store in the motivation field)....
