Subject: Re: [office-metadata] Re: [office] proposal to enhanceannotations

Hmm. So you would suggest to Oliver to use line-breaks instead of paragraphs. Sure --- he didn't have to enhance annotations then ;-)

Anway --- that was not the reason we dropped start/end tags.

It's been awhile, but I think you were saying that the primary use case 
you were relying on was where field content might have line-breaks. I 
think we just suggested using the line-breaks, then, rather than 

As I said, though, it's a little fuzzy now.

For reference, the problem with these sorts of regions is that 
overlapping markup and potential well-formedness problems. This is why 
the start/end approach.
