[annotator-dev] HTTP headers required for annotator-store

I wanted to follow up on my posts from last week on the fluidinfo 
backend store. I'm assuming that folks are pretty busy, but just wanted 
to ask if anyone has had a chance to look at it yet. I'd like to at 
least get a basic read if this is something that might be useful for the 
annotator project in some form, or if it turns out not to be that useful 
after all.

Also, I wanted to ask whether the HTTP headers required for 
annotator-store backends was documented somewhere. After some trial and 
error and looking at the annotator-store code, I saw that I needed to 
add some CORS headers to get it to work, like 
Access-Control-Allow-Origin and Access-Control-Expose-Headers.

Also, the HTTP response to the OPTIONS command doesn't seem to be 
documented on the storage API page:


Here too, I used the annotator-store code as a reference and just copied 
what it was doing.
