Awesome question Robert, for which I have no ready answer. Using polygon selectors defined with GeoJSON/TopoJSON appeals to me naturally as it conveys the intent without needing any server side processing other than regular storage, and can be rendered easily in any client.

We are using this for annotating climate science and Earth observation datasets but this could have application within the broader remit of GIS applications.  Could this be relevant here or does it come under the category of 'data annotation' that you mention?  Maybe you or others on the list are aware of similar activities in this area.
