When marking a reference to a person in a text document, should the oa:SemanticTag type and oa:tagging motivation be used, or just oa:identifying on its own?  Or all three?

So, for example, with a document that starts with the sentence:

Robert Frost wrote Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.

would I ítag' Robert Frost like so:

    "@context": "http://www.w3.org/ns/oa-context-20130208.json", 
    "@id": "http://cwrc.ca/annotations/35345", 
    "@type": "oa:Annotation",

    "motivation":["oa:identifying", "oa:tagging"],
    "annotatedAt": "2014-02-24T07:04:23", 
    "annotatedBy": {
        "@id": "http://cwrc.ca/people/98", 
        "@type": "foaf:Person", 
        "mbox": {
            "@id": "mailto:jc.chartrand@gmail.com"
        "name": "James Chartrand"

    "hasBody": {
        "@id": "http://viaf.org/viaf/3201005", 
        "@type": ["oa:SemanticTag", "foaf:Person"]        

    "hasTarget": {
        "@id": "urn:uuid:720DF324-79F2-4736-B153-AE479518313B", 
        "@type": "oa:SpecificResource", 
        "hasSelector": {
            "@id": "urn:uuid:09B66941-D135-431E-86E0-605D6B9A34D1", 
            "@type": "oa:TextPositionSelector", 
            "start": 0,
            "end": 12
        "hasSource": {
            "@id": "http://cwrc.ca/documents/3234", 

So, the body above is:

 "hasBody": {
        "@id": "http://viaf.org/viaf/3201005", 
        "@type": ["oa:SemanticTag", "foaf:Person"]        

and the motivation:

"motivation":["oa:identifying", "oa:tagging"]

or should the body instead be:

  "hasBody": {
        "@id": "http://viaf.org/viaf/3201005", 
        "@type": ["foaf:Person"]        

and the motivation instead be:
