As I said yesterday I am in favor of a more compact namespace: oa vs.
That would make easier extensions: 'oa-ext' vs 'openannotation-ext'

But I agree 'openannotation' seems a better brand name.

After several past attempts to maintain namespaces with the '/' and after
Ivan's suggestions  I am in favor of  the '#' approach.

In conclusion either of these works for me
<http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#> (preferred)
<http://www.w3.org/ns/openannotation#> (verbose with extensions unless we
use http://www.w3.org/ns/openannotation/ext#<http://www.w3.org/ns/openannotation/ext1#>)

I personally don't like <http://www.w3.org/ns/annotation#>.
