The only requirement for me which is really important is that it is 
generic and can be trained/adapted for the news domain,
usually I try to avoid the dependency on UIMA in my NLP components 
because it makes them hard to integrate when you
do not want to use UIMA. UIMA is a nice tool when you need to process 
large amounts of texts with a couple of NLP tools put
together in someway, but it makes things difficult if you try to do 
something with just one text or a snippet of it (e.g. to produce
relations as input for an annotation tool).
