don't know how someone reads this, who does not know all these benefits 
anyways. Reads as if you are selling RDF to somebody who knows half-way 
the benefits of RDF.
It would have made sense to be more precise on the privacy and security 
issues. Neither RDF nor XML have been developed to address privacy / 
security, and either one is highly important in healthcare systems.  Do 
you have even stronger arguments for privacy and security issues?

Hope this helps.
