Reviewed the annotation messages. FP_Messages#Annotations

Noted that we can use the TDWG Taxon Concept Ontology http://rs.tdwg.org/ontology/voc/TaxonConcept for at least most of the elements within the determination of a FP_Messages#FP_NEW_DETERMINATION message. Choice of elements will need to be done carefully to ensure that injected messages contain fully atomic data. For example, authorship will need to be handled carefully, as the taxon concept ontology TaxonName/authorship http://rs.tdwg.org/ontology/voc/TaxonName#authorship is "The full author string used for this name", which for Botanical authors doesn't atomize author, ex author, parenthetical author, and parenthetical ex author. Available for this is TaxonName/authorTeam http://rs.tdwg.org/ontology/voc/TaxonName#authorTeam "A breakdown of the authors who published this name including both basionym and combination authors (if any)", though it looks like this will need definition of a controlled vocabulary to use with TeamMember/role http://rs.tdwg.org/ontology/voc/Team#role which has a range of XMLSchema/string.
