*The Open Annotation Core Data Model specifies an interoperable framework
for creating associations between related resources, annotations, using a
methodology that conforms to the Architecture of the World Wide Web*. Open
Annotations can easily be shared between platforms, with sufficient
richness of expression to satisfy complex requirements while remaining
simple enough to also allow for the most common use cases, such as
attaching a piece of text to a single web resource.

An Annotation is considered to be a set of connected resources, typically
including a body and target, where the body is somehow about the target.
The full model supports additional functionality, enabling semantic
annotations, embedding content, selecting segments of resources, choosing
the appropriate representation of a resource and providing styling hints
for consuming clients.
