It should be. 

We don't need another syntax for something that does almost the same
thing as an inlinetask but, yet, isn't one. Inline todo/inlinetasks,

Also, I don't want to clutter the document with annotations, hence
moving them to a specific section, while retaining a minimal syntax in
the document.
