Hi Robert,

sorry for the late follow-up on this. I have to add just one question to 
this: in the use case document or a different location, is there a 
description of actors? I was thinking of e.g.

1) content architect: providing annotations for several (potentially 
thousands of documents)
2) a content author: using the templates made by content architects and 
adapting them to her needs
3) a content quality evaluator: in selected pieces of content making 
exceptions to 1) and 2)

I am mentioning this because I see styling as a kind of annotation, and 
in CSS there are direct technical means that reflect above actors:

1) CSS stylesheets
2) Precedence between css stylesheets; the content author will add a 
stylsheet that is linked in a subsequent position compared to 1) and 
hence has higher precedence
3) The HTML "style" attribute

So to serve such roles one needs to define rules for precedence (between 
1) and 2)) and inheritance (some style information inherits through the 
whole tree, like color; others doesn't, like setting of borders) and 
overriding (the "style" attribute overrides the stylesheet information).

With the comparison to style I also tried to emphasize that above actors 
may not be specific to localization etc., but relevant for annotation in 
general. What do you think?

Thanks for your feedback in advance,
