Another comment on the Abstract (bearing in mind that abstracts
can be read out of context!):

The opening sentence says: "Current web pages, written
in HTML, are chock-full of structured data."  A reader
could misunderstand this to mean that current HTML pages
are _already_ full of structured data, just waiting to be
cut-and-pasted between Semantic Web applications.

Section 2.1 draws a distinction between "implicit data" and a
"standard mechanism to explicitly express it".  Making such a
distinction in the Abstract (even the first sentence) would
clarify things.
