Yes, I find "emergent uses" confusing.  Do you mean "(emergent) social uses"
(i.e., social uses, including emergent social uses)?

    Call for Use Cases: Social uses and other new uses of Library Linked Data

captures what my understanding of what you'd like to elicit.

There is nothing in the formulations above that is specific
to linked data.  At this point, I would expect a transitional
sentence explaining that you are interested specifically in
uses that are related to, could benefit from, etc, the use
of linked data.

The "on the Web" bit vastly broadens the scope of the request.  It's 
unclear here what you really want to ask.  Are you asking something like:

    What new or innovative uses do you see (or envision)
    integrating library and cultural heritage data into
    applications on the Web?

The rest looks good!
