Also, I particularly like how its shaped up as an "Annotea mail
client" useful for discussing ontologies by exchanging "mails" or
annotations about ontological entities. Hence the next obvious step -
"Attachments" for ontology change sets. The latest version just has a
button representing it - still have to code this, but when its done
you could attach a change set to an annotation, which someone can
download and "apply"..cool huh:)
