A new way to caption digital photos

I'm an online-news technology buff, and I can see this as a wonderful tool for online news photos. It's called Fotonotes. Basically, it's a tool for annotating JPEG pictures inside the pictures themselves. With the software, you can map out specific parts of a photo (say, a person's face) and then attach mouseover text to it. When you pass your mouse over a mapped piece of a photo you get pop-up text identifying that part of the photo, and a highlight area where the rest of the image is darkened to emphasize the highlight area.

Am I the only one that finds this really cool? The link I got this from has an example.
