An annotation specifying a relation


I want to be able to create annotations that are "about" a relation
between two (or more) targets. How do I represent that in the OAC model?

For example, I want to annotate that I think that sentence S1 in text T1
has been influenced by sentence S2 in text T2.

I can define an annotation with two targets but I can not state that the
two have a specific (directed or undirected) relation.

What would be the best way to model this?

I thought of an extra TargetRelation node that is connected to the
Annotation node and the two Target nodes but this seems rather unelegant...

Any ideas?

P.S. I am currently at DH2012, anybody else? how about a meetup?
