17 actually, numbered from 2 to 18

2, 6, 15  : mentions RDF in the problem description (I think irredeemably - i.e. these are just too techy to be meaningful use cases)

11, 12, 13, 14, 16: while being RDFa specific on the surface could easily be reworded not to be.
I believe such rewording would be beneficial.

So I make it less than 10 that meet Ian's not unreasonable requirements, which could be increased to about 14.
