Rob, the future is here, or better said, we are creating it right now :)
We are facing a sociotechnical problem, rather than a purely technical one.
While your suggestion of starting from scratch is certainly a way of
addressing it, it throws away information that has been elaborated during
countless years.
It is possible that OA might not be the right place to define it since it
seems to be very digital centric, and we need more flexibility annotating
digital representations of the real world..
Let's see if I can make progress with the TEI. They seem to be more focused
addressing this kind of problems.
Thanks anyway for all your kind advices!
