[DPUB-ANNOTATION-UC] Annotations for accessibility use case

Dear Working Groups,

At the very start of discussions about annotations, the use case for
enhancing publications for accessibility was provided.

There certainly will be items in Accessible EPUB  or any other digital
specification that will require enhancements; STEM materials, for example
will need more elaboration than is provided in the accessible version that
meets a baseline.

At diagramcenter.org, a Diagrammar  framework for making content accessible
has been developed. We have been thinking that this content model would be
transformed to structured HTML5 and used to annotate an item in a EPUB or
other digital formats.

I simply want to remind the working group of this fundamental use case.
