That hits the nail right on it's head. However, there is some related
work that has been done in the Annotea project; I'm contacting some of
the people there. Also Jim and Nick (who has just joined the group) may
be able to share some experience around this topic too.

It would be a major milestone if we can move forward on this item so I
ask everyone to try and contribute to it...
