Do you already have any ideas on the JSON format?

We are still interested to use annotations also to establish and comment
on relations between multiple documents and parts of documents, e.g.
sentence A in text B is a translation of sentence C in text D. This
would need the annotation to have multiple targets and a way to specify
the type and direction of the relation. We would like to use the same
also for image-image and text-image relation-annotations.

That's of course another open issue :-)
