I went looking for pointers to the documentation. Some of it is documented  
in the Annotea schema - - but a  
lot of it seems undocumented - all I could find were examples in the  
Annotea protocol document - - but it seems pretty  
straightforward. If we decided to use this approach we might do the  
annotea community a favour as well as ourselves, by writing up a  
documented schema...
