Just as a a data point: I have begun to look at what it would mean to change the Python RDFLib library for RDF 1.1. Some of the changes are really additions and do not really constitute any major issue, just work (adding datasets, skolemization, TriG parser and serializer), but the changes around datatypes, essentially the handling of plain literals and language tagged literals, needs more consideration and the choices are fully clear. All this to say that such a document would be very useful when updating libraries like RDFLib.

That is, what are various stakeholders (infrastructure vendors, data publishers, application authors, vocabulary authors, WGs with related specifications) supposed to do in order to take advantage of RDF 1.1?
