I'm not certain what your question is, but this sounds similar to one of the
example annotators: MeetingAnnotator - it is an annotator that takes the results
of 2 previous annotators, "TutorialDateTime" and RoomNumberAnnotator, and makes
a new Meeting annotation, whose span is from the beginning of the earliest
previous annotation to the end of the latest one.
