I didn't choose 'matching pair' of start and end, because of the 
following reason:
An implementation, which supports ODF 1.1 will not lose the annotation, 
which annotates a part of the document. Such an application will still 
read the <office:annotation> element - it only ignores the unknown 
attribute office:annotation-end-id and the unknown element 
Backward-Compatibility was the reason not the introduce new elements 
<office:annotation-start> and <office:annotation-end>.
