Yes, that's a risk. OTH, Annotating pages from sites which do not have
this ability can be pretty usefull and a closed list would be much less
flexible. I don't know yet if and how the system will be used but I
think I'll try to keep it open for the moment and close the list of
sites which can be annotated if needed.

Thanks for the warning, we tend to care less about lawyers in France and
I think I'd better be aware of these dangers!
