Agreed, I'd go for 'comment' for now, I think we have used that term more

Absolutely we need a better list, the thing is we really never gave this a
good thought. Anyway I'd say that thinking in advance of the perfect list
shouldn't be the aim but rather it should evolve as we gain experience of
what kind of things people annotate.

Maybe we should consider also some minimal very concise help on what this
category thing is (next to the comment box for example)

Yes you are right. For me the best solution is the separate gallery page,
which at the same time is adding a new cool feature and anyway we have the
script to generate the images already, haven't we? It would be simply a
matter of generate them and slowly uploading them.
