I think that people amy contest the validity of this use case, at least
the way it is formulated in terms of 'blogging'. Indeed:

- the comparison with the access to Atom/RSS is misleading, because an
Atom/RSS feed usually does *not* include things like foaf:knows or
anything similar anyway!
- the text says "if Paul edits one of his blog posts, the corresponding
structured data is also automatically updated"; well, if I change my
blog, the corresponding RSS/Atom feeds are also automatically updated.

I think we should not refer to 'blog' here but simply to Paul's home
page that contains this information. Whether this extra information is
on Paul's blog is, in this respect, besides the point.

Alternatively, if we want to keep to a blog, what *could* be said is
that I can *add* this extra information to my blog which indeed does
*not* appear through the usual RSS/Atom mechanism. *That* may be a good
selling point (and some of the use cases below, like use case #4, make
use of this additional mechanism.).

(Note that, unfortunately, that means editing the blog item at the
source level, because the blog system's wswyg editing offers only a
limited capacity to do these things. Maybe we could add a reference that
the blog system becomes RDFa aware and adds this feature to its wswyg
part, too)
