[developers] boring though important: generalizing characterization

this proposal appears to be missing the generalised notion of character ranges 
that we require for XML input - i.e., the combination of xpath with character 
position.  The token lattice notion is _not_ adequate for our purposes, given 
that we require a general notion of standoff annotation that can work with 
multiple tokenisations (and indeed, for processing that is not token based).  
Uli and Ben have both done extensive work on this.
