yes, corrected

true, added

I also thought that they would be editorial comments, but I couldn't
figure out how to do this nicely in the wiki. My editorial comments
are quite ugly and do not work well for multi-line comments :-( I'll
do that in the W3C document and for now I have added (Editor's
Comment) to the secion heading.

I added a section preliminary definitions, where I quickly recapture
the important definitions and point to the SPARQL Quary Language spec
for normative definitions.

yes, good comment. I flagged them as informative and added a comment
to the introduction pointing out that the RDF(S) rules are just used
in an informative way and that systems are not expected to implement
them.

Thanks for the very useful comments,
