Hi Sebastian,

that you for that slide. I'm very much aware of your work back then ;) In  
fact, explicit support for String URIs in WebAnnotation is one aspect that  
I would like to push in the context of this initiative. I see no inherent  
issue with the approach (except that it is more well-suited for some  
applications than for others), and I advocate it myself (for on-the-fly  
annotation, at least), but it could be *a lot* more visible beyond the NIF  
community and better documented in WA.

But this is not the only topic for discussion. Another one is how to  
formalize linguistic annotations in general.  NIF has limited linguistic  
data structures, WA has none --  I see no way to do morphological  
segmentation with either (without inventing new vocabulary), for example.  
Neither WA nor NIF 2.0 can adequately distinguish  non-branching phrase  
structure nodes for example. You may remember my questions about empty  
nodes a few years back (which were partially addressed with the Annotation  
element). And so on ...
