To do this, you write (or modify and existing) remote annotator that is doing
the work of running the regex's.

So, for example the remote annotator could read the "Control" FS, and (I'm
making up this design - it may not be suitable...) take the value of some
feature as the regex to run. 

The key here is that this approach requires customizing the client and the
remote to create and read the new control FS.
