no formal comparison to my knowledge. Note that there's differences in 
methodology and in content models - I'm not sure which is more relevant

we expect it to keep up with FHIR generally, but the only specific RDF 
item I know of is that there should be more work on mapping the base. 
The most important work on the FHIR side is filling out the mappings to 
the patterns.

there's some use case work for FHIR generally - see the modules, but 
also seebuild.fhir.org/usecases.html <http://build.fhir.org/usecases.html>

is thisbuild.fhir.org/fivews.html <http://build.fhir.org/fivews.html>?

what differences would it have that would make it lightweight?
