Thanks, Antoine! :)

I think it would be useful to add an introductory paragraph to the inventory, giving a motivation for providing it. Motivations might include

-having a convenient place for librarians to become more familiar with key vocabularies
--due to general lack of familiarity
--due to the importance of reusing vocabularies

-showing the adoption of semweb and the maturity of existing vocabularies
--there are many areas with mature vocabularies
--there are other areas where libraries could participate in the innovation if they desire

Maybe there are other reasons? The intro would help clarify the importance of this section in the whole report, as well as indicate the appropriate audience for it.

I've also created a small intro in the "current situation" sub-section, which refers to our survey and the appendix section.
