I am a little bit afraid of trying to do too much and doing it in 
isolation. We do have fragment selectors in very general terms. I 
believe our general strategy should be that experts of various media 
types, that want to have annotations on that data, should define their
 respective fragment selector mechanisms, and the model should rely on
 those.

I realize that, in some cases, the fragment used by an application 
will not be entirely kosher in the sense of not going through the full
 round of IANA registration of the fragment. And that is fine: the 
application will use some non-fully-standard, or de-facto-standard, or
 XXXX-standard fragment ID. But trying to define, essentially, 
fragments within the realm of this WG has no end in sight...
