A collection of text documents that you can run
analysis on.  If I understand correctly, the Cas
Editor currently requires XCAS/XmiCAS files.  It
would be nice if users could just add their text
files and then either create annotations manually
with the Cas Editor, or automatically by running
some analysis and then view the results using the
Cas Editor.  Then we could add results comparison
etc.  See
http://dl.alphaworks.ibm.com/technologies/tap/text_analysis_perspective.pdf
for a (outdated) description of what we have
in-house.  It's geared more towards a business user
than a developer, but the ideas of document collections
and the development cycle are equally applicable.
If there was enough interest here, I think that
would be a good direction to go in.
