This is good news and I add my thanks.

It will be no surprise to OA followers that only problem I have with
the early draft is that it does not unambiguously put data annotation
in the scope.  This is all the more disappointing given the quite
interesting efforts that Tim and Ivan have pointed out in
public-openannotation@w3.org about data citation practices, e.g.
http://force11.org/datacitation, in the context of increasing pressure
from funding agencies to provide the data behind the conclusions of
scientific publications.
