Subject: 130 candidate annotation in Dec-17 Draft

Hi David, all,

To follow-up on issue 130.

This type of annotation didn't exist in the core of the cs02. It has been added between cs02 and cs03 I'm not sure why as it seems
it's not mentioned in either the wiki tracking or the list of changes in the document (I may have missed something though)

The Matches module should define what is used, not the core.

The case of the term annotation is completely different: it's used to denote terms and the reference to additional information is
only optional.

Actually having matches holding the ref shows an annotation is not even needed now as you can point directly to a segment (something
I don't like as it may result loosing information when you re-segment the content). By the way: the Matches section doesn't
explicitly say if you can or cannot do that, but no constraint forbid it and the wording technically allow it. (and obviously that
was one of the main point of Dave).

In general I don't think it's good to define module-specific metadata in the core. So far this annotation is the only one doing

So I still strongly suggest to remove that section and define the mtc:match as a type for <mrk> in the Matches module,
where IMO it belongs.

Side note: The example has a match example, but doesn't use the latest Matches mechanism (ref from the match).
