Dear Petr, all,

out of curiosity (not being specialist in this) - does not ShEx have also W3C endorsement? It seems to be hosted at W3C (https://www.w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/ShEx) and even its Primer is published uner W3C Community Group (http://shex.io/shex-primer/).

ShEx is indeed hosted as a W3C Community Group and the primer and other related documents are being prepared as community group reports. However, these are not recommendations that the W3C endorse.

SHACL went through the W3C recommendation process as a Working Group with a defined charter. The outputs of the group go through a formal process of approval as a W3C recommendation.

I hope this clarifies things. There is a lot more detail in the W3C charter.
