For some use cases, the granularity of oa:Annotation is somewhat 
limiting. There appears to be value in being able to work with lists, 
clusters or sets of annotations. The use of LDP Direct Containers 
seems to suggest a way to efficiently manage and retrieve annotations 
in a list or set. 

Could the protocol go further in this direction and provide an equally
 efficient way to Create annotation lists or sets, e.g., a way to post
 in a single graph, a single LDP-RS that includes multiple 
annotations. This would raise the bar a bit for the server -- e.g., 
might require implicitly the creation and population of a Direct 
Container for all the included annotations, more could always be added
 by subsequently posting to the Direct Container -- but being able to 
post multiple annotations in a single graph could be seen as making 
life easier for the client and would support a more transactional 
interaction, e.g., these 3 related annotations all need to be created 
together or not all. 

Would this approach require adding an AnnotationList class to the data
