Re: CFC: Basic Roles Proposal

Hi Doug,

Perhaps Rob can correct me if I'm misremembering but, having the motivation
at the level of annotation was how we avoided this semantic conundrum.

Now we simply have nothing to tell them. That we can motivations on targets
is the price we pay for the functionality that they want (essentially using
annotations as bags of annotations). I expect it be such a seldomly
exercised use case that collapses very easily into a multiplicity structure
that we won't have to remark upon it at all.
