just to add some support to this thread
1 - i am strongly supportive of this need for having simple 
understandable descriptions of at least one kind of user we believe 
should use each fragment.
2 - on the 3 points below, if i had 2 and 3 below, i would use them 
right away.
my restatement of what i would use today would be:

2a Creating inference graphs from RDF data by performing rule-based 
forward chaining thus making information that is implicit in the rdf 
explicit in the rdf graph. 
3a  Efficiently querying the resulting inference RDF graph with standard 
web query languages including SPARQL.

I specifically was silent on the not necessarily complete - if i could 
have complete algorithms, that is better, but incomplete is still useful.

i would use this immediately in my joint work on instance evaluation.
