[developers] Semantic treebanking without grammar?

Dear all,

we would like to do some MRS treebanking on the output of a French TAG. 
Obviously, we cannot replay derivations with the LKB, so
we thought that we could simply treebank using the discriminators 
extracted from the MRS. I quickly tried this out with a Hausa treebank, 
i.e. activating Trees|Annotate without any grammar loaded, and the fine 
system just outputs error messages complaining it cannot reconstruct the 
trees. *tree-discriminants-mode* is set to :modern.

Is it possible at all? I remember an LREC 2006 paper on this. What do I 
have to do configuration-wise to make it possible?
