Hi, here are some comments re wording (no essential ones, really, I 
think the questions are fine).

maybe "promote *a* Semantic Web" (as suggested on the wiki somewhere),
or "a more semantic Web", or "the benefits of a|the s|Semantic Web".
Just ideas with the basic thought of being as open (tech-wise) as 
possible (working around bad rap hooks).

hmm, what exactly is the decision about in the end? Will SWEO just 
suggest a "winner", or what will be the next steps? Is it a two-phase
process where people 1st make suggestions and can then vote on the
project they'd like to see happen / contribute to? Maybe we should 
add another sentence here?

Maybe switch the order of these sentence parts or make it sound a bit
less "versus"-ish? "What would be the main benefit of using Semantic Web
technologies to achieve ..." or so. We could also try to combine q4
with this one,  la "What do SemWeb techs add and where do you see
an overlap with other technologies that could be used to accelerate
the adoption of your solution?"

I hope some of those comments make sense ;)
