Re: [web-annotation] Annotation Lists

Right, but only at the page level.  The items on a single page can be 
in any order, the guarantee is that they all sort greater than 
previous pages and less than next pages.  Which if your page size is 
1000, and there's only one page, you're out of luck.

As for client side sorting being impossible, how about:
  * Relevance ranking on a query
  * DOM order (by which I mean the order that the target segments 
appear in a page)
  * Similarly, target order, where the target resources are ordered 
somehow ... like book pages.
  * Social network distance between user and annotator (to see your 
friends' annotations first)
  * Private values (A business strategy might be to give away 
annotations, and keep the exact ordering secret sauce private)
