The SmILE plug-in creates several annotation features that are Map data types, however when saving the document to XML only features with key and value types of String, Number, and Collection are saved to the XML. This makes it impossible to share the annotated documents with these features among GATE users.

Ideally the data type restriction would be significantly relaxed to allow for serialization of most any data type.

    this has been fixed for a while, but I've just checked and it definately works with the SmILE plugin (although that plugin needs fixing to not use the annotations param in the RHS of Jape rules)
