Annotations are any kind of comments on some content by some people or machines creating new content or adding views etc. in general with some semantics included which are not necessary for interpretation/re-use of the object.[from e-mail by Peter Wittenburg, 11/7/2013] Submitted 14 April 2016

Distinction of metadata and annotation is based on authority of the party that is making the assertion. Use OpenAnnotation model for this element. Subtypes defined based on intention, not implementation. Submitted 14 April 2016
