Ideally yes, they should share exactly the same schema. The main problem here is annotation
tools. What we'd really want is an annotation tool that works directly off of a UIMA type
system file. But I don't know of any such tool. (And no, the CAS Editor doesn't count - that's
not usable for any real large-scale complex annotation.)
