I'd like to not talk about the WG except in the "status of this
document" section. Perhaps:

  Adoption of Semantic Web technology will be significantly improved
  by widely adopted recommendations for a query language and data
  access protocol.

But I'm also not comfortable with that sort of prognostication.
Perhaps

  Projects such as [1], [2] show that Semantic Web users
  have requirements for RDF data access technology sufficient
  to motivate implementation. These implementations
  have much in common and would benefit from a specification
  of interoperable functionality.

provided WG members have suitable projects to suggest for [1], [2].
