Differences between documents and manuscripts?
MASTER: The <additions> element is used to record and discuss any written or drawn additional text found in a manuscript, such as marginalia, scribblings, etc. which the cataloguer considers of interest or importance. Such topics may also be discussed or referenced elsewhere in a description, for example in the <history> element where the marginalia provide evidence of ownership, but the <additions> element is particularly useful for this purpose. <additions><p>In most parts of the codex the text has been quite extensively corrected in a contemporary hand from the manuscript GKS 3270 4to.</p> </additions>

The English proper term would be annotation, which is then defined as an addition to a complete document

Isn't it the same as <nota>? Couldn't we substitute nota with addittions?
