I want to be able to follow links to those lists, to avoid knowing how to construct URLs or requests for different systems.  I want to receive a consistent structure in the response whenever I follow those links in order to avoid writing multiple implementations of the same functionality.

For example, annotations directly on images that are embedded within the page should be available to me along with the annotations on the text within the page.

I do not want to change my current publication look and feel or user experience, whether that contains the annotations or not.  I want to be able to point to the lists of annotations, regardless of whether they are on my server or in another system.

I'm not sure what it means (in practice) to target a more specific version of a resource embedded in a web page.  Do you have an example?


> in order to display those annotations to the user.  The external system is not known to the resource publisher, or publishers and there is no reference to it from the resource.  My users have configured the client to know where to look, the client needs to know how to interact with the remote service and retrieve a consistent representation of the list.

I want to be able to construct a request to the remote system to retrieve the annotations on my content, either on a resource by resource basis, or more broadly across my entire web site.

I want arbitrary annotation clients to know where my server is and how to interact with it without having to implement anything special for my content.
