I've been looking at how to express trackbacks recorded at arXiv.org as 
annotations. Seems like a good conceptual match to me, anyone disagree?

I am thinking of something like the following in JSON-LD (complete set 
at [1] in RDF/XML though dates missing):

   "@graph": [
       "http://purl.org/dc/terms/title": "Milky Way may hide dark matter 
'pancake' - 01 April 2009 - New Scientist"
       "@type": "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#Annotation",
       "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#annotatedAt": "2009-04-02T02:03:04Z",
       "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#annotatedBy": "http://arxiv.org",
       "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#hasBody": {
       "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#hasTarget": {
         "@id": "http://resync.library.cornell.edu/lod/abs/0902.4001"
       "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#motivatedBy": {
         "@id": "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa#commenting"

The http://resync.library.cornell.edu/lod/abs/0902.4001 URI is a 
surrogate for the real arXiv article URI (which would be 
http://arxiv.org/abs/0902.4001 but does not yet support conneg).

It seems that without knowing more than we do, the best general 
motivation we can express is "commenting".

Any comments welcome.
