I’ve fixed the model according to these discussions:

1. We’ve separated the read operation and the “annotated task read operation.” The former uses Fetch’s notion of a body, which is a byte stream, and so is convenient to work with. Hopefully, it should allow plugging right back into Fetch.

2. The methods now invoke an annotated task read operation.
