Group annotations

I haven't heard much in recent months about the long awaited scalable
group annotations that NCSA were supposed to be working on and so I
thought it was about time to prod the group. I noticed in the
documentation at CERN that there is a document describing REL link
relationships attributes for <A> tags
(<URL:>) which
could be used to point browsers at specific annotation servers for
different documents and even allow new annotations to be sent to different
servers to that which the original annotation came from. Has any progress
been made on group annotations or do any browsers support the use of the
experimental REL attributes for this purpose?
