I think analyzing which goals we're dealing with in a UC and writing a 
palatable text are two separate things :-)

The point of the exercise would be to somehow homogenize and clarify the 
current texts.

We can think about the result:

- a newly written text for the Goals section that is based more on our 
abstract descriptions of the goals rather than what the UC owners put there
- keep text as-is but add abstract goals
- ...

It is my feeling that many of the cases are just indeed very 
overlapping. In all cases you need to port some existing data to an RDF 
format, so stuff like URIs pop up everywhere. In all cases you want to 
publish that data as LD. In all cases you then want to provide access to 
this data.

I actually think this is a feature, not a bug. It shows there's actually 
one coherent story we want to tell, instead of 40 different ones (UCs). 
Only the details of representation and usage are different.

Best,
Mark.
