I apologize I haven't been able to do a full 
review yet. I have read the document quickly and I 
have two comments.

1. The use cases by itself are convincing. 
However, a use-case description should be driven 
by the application need and not by technology. 
Ideally, the term RDFa does not appear at all in 
the document: use cases only describe the 
(desired) behavior as seen from the outside.

2. I would also expect to see a list of 
requirements that can be derived from the use 
case. I know this is in fact a post-hoc 
rationalization of the RDFa design, but as Parnas 
pointed out [1] this is actually an OK thing to do 

Sorry for this late and incomplete response.
