This allows in-image notation. It's all very well to upload a picture
of a dozen people clustered around a table and say "this photo
contains A and B on the left, and C is the one behind the potted
plant, and F on the right-hand side turned partly away from the
camera..." - but there are great advantages, potentially, to being
able to note that directly on the image.
But in reality, I think it's a build-it-and-they-will-come situation;
if you implement something, people will find an interesting and novel
use for it. Witness all the fun stuff people do with categories...
