How do people feel <annotation> would relate to <footnote> and <remark> ?

It seems to me that <remark> would be just a special case of
<annotation> (class="(Editorial|ProofReader)", and maybe a couple
more), and that <footnote> could be merged into <annotation> as well,
but I'd rather not use "footnote" as a class value, as it has IMHO too
much layout-oriented connotation.  Maybe footnotes could be made the
default processing for <annotation>, and some annotation classes
(eg. editorial comments) would be possible to render as marginalia.
