I think this is right. I wonder, would you consider a potential use case for Description to also provide machine readable data for a resource when a standard identifier is not known? It would be interesting to explore what identifiers + csl (and other options) would look like in a twitter annotation if you had time to mock something up in a wiki somewhere :-) //Ed  http://citationstyles.org/citation-style-language/schema/
