Yes, it could be ... and indeed that would be exactly what the model

The distinction would be between:
    { "oa:annotatedBy" : "http://server.net/people/handle" }
    { "oa:annotatedBy" : {"foaf:nick" : "handle" } }

Where the first is clearly globally unique, and the second is dependent on
the user list of whichever system is managing the 'handle' user.

It'd be great if this was able to be relied upon in Annotator 2.0?  Or is
that asking too much? :)
