This is not likely to be terribly wrong for most use, I think. It also
means we don't need to migrate existing annotations, extracting their tags
and turning those into second order annotations.

For our use at Hypothesis, the user field is a URI, not a string literal
representing a foaf:nick.

If I have to override the context document, fine.

But also worth pointing out that without the auth and permissions plugins
there is no user field. If those components are optional, should the base
context even include them?
