I find <annot>s handy for encoding anything that's not covered by general MEI.  It's more flexible than @type:

  * you can only have one @type on an element, but as many <annot>s as you like
  * <annot> can have @subtype as well,
  * it can have (structured) content, e.g. if you need to record how many beats a measure actually has - say with <num type="beats">.
