Summary: Ready with nits

1) I might be missing something obvious, but the introduction has two 

statements that don't seem aligned:

" Values of annotations are not limited to strings; any YANG built-in or 

derived type may be used for them"

"annotations are scalar values and cannot be further structured".

If I'm not missing something, that may be more of an open issue than a nit.

2) The shepherd writeup calls out the tension in figuring out whether to 

make this an extension or a new built-in statement. Please consider 

capturing the reasoning for the path you chose in the draft itself.
