[annotator-dev] Trouble setting up local storage

I did create a new "id" field that copied "_id", although now that I look
at it I ended up copying _id from ranges and not the main one, which may be
an issue. I'll see what happens if I fix that.

As for the URI, it actually does match, but I changed it by hand in the
email (because my friend is paranoid). Sorry for the confusion there, good
catch though!
