Not necessarily. I may want to create an annotation saying, in English
 term, "Iván is a jerk". This should be an annotation on the whole 
list, so to say…

text, to narrow down the possibilities for matching and, as the spec 
says, "to distinguish between multiple copies of the same sequence of 
characters"? If you normalize the text before matching you do the 
opposite: you can no longer tell whether the annotation should be 
associated with "Iván" or "Iva´n", whereas before, by happy accident, 
you had that possibility.
