I would really advise against using HTTP for anything that is meant to
 work across locations, meaning if an annotation can be made in a host
 (perhaps disconnected) and then served by a variety of other hosts, 
it is best to use a URI of some sort.

In IPFS, I would use either a keypair (naming the object as 
`/ipns/<cryptographic_hash(public_key)>`), or use an object nested 
under a keypair (naming the object as something like 
`/ipns/<cryptographic_hash(public_key)>/annotations/<uuid>`). This 
would be a _name_ which resolves to an immutable object representing 
the state at a particular time (think of it like git-style 
versioning). Could even point to version history chains, if desired.
