And of course, I forgot the links...

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Authority_Data_Enrichment
[3] http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Digital_Preservation

Some additional remarks about my wiki changes:

I rearranged the UseCases page a little bit and moved it to Use_Cases:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Cases (UseCases is redirected)

I have copied the contents of Topics3 to Topics and marked Topics3 as
deprecated.

Regards,

Kai
