What else did you expect to change? I did not see any email from you 
suggesting other changes. But we will continue to address further comments in 
the remaining time, so feel free to send them.

However, quite some more things have changed, mostly in response to review 
comments that we received from other WG members. The diff for the week is at:

I am unsure what you have in mind here. Do you suggest to include sections 
that explain the content Direct Semantics and RDF-based Semantics documents? I 
agree with Uli that this would be beyond the scope of the Primer. Or do you 
suggest to extend the current informal explanations of the semantics of the 
constructs? In this case, it would be great if you could give an example of an 
explanation that you think needs more details.
