A better solution in the long run would be to extend the filtering and backend organisation to allow for "annotation lists", or "collections". I would envisage individual users creating Collections and picking and choosing annotations (theirs and others) to add to them.

Hi James,

Any estimate of this type is subject to a huge degree of uncertainty, as I'm sure you know. That said, I'm confident that the internal architecture of the Annotator is mature and well-factored, which makes adding features such as this much easier than it would otherwise be.

A proper implementation of Collections would probably require modifications to the Annotator Store, and the writing of a Collections Plugin for the Annotator. My best guess for how long this would take is about a man-week.
