Hi,

A small comment on:
ACTION: emma to put the Goals page content at the beginning of the use case section [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/minutes/2011/01/27-lld-minutes.html#action02]

Today I have suggested:

> <Zakim> antoine, you wanted to discuss an "exec summary" on UCs?
> antoine: the page could be a good list of reminders for introducing the section on use cases. an executive summary style of what linked data would do in terms of applications.

I was especially thinking of what was done for the abstract of the SKOS Primer [1]. There are two sentences there that just capture everything that SKOS allows to do:

> In basic SKOS, conceptual resources (concepts) are identified with URIs, labeled with strings in one or more natural languages, documented with various types of note, semantically related to each other in informal hierarchies and association networks, and aggregated into concept schemes.
> In advanced SKOS, conceptual resources can be mapped across concept schemes and grouped into labeled or ordered collections. Relationships can be specified between concept labels. Finally, the SKOS vocabulary itself can be extended to suit the needs of particular communities of practice or combined with other modeling vocabularies.


We could have sthg similar for UCs, re-using the words used for the goals. Like (please imagine a more beautiful style, I'm assembling this in 30sec!):

"LLD use cases typically use linked data technology to identify with URIs resources of interest in the library domain and PUBLISHing data about them in interoperable formats. [...] Many application scenarios aim at making explicit EXISTING RELATIONSHIPS between these objects or create NEW ones, potentially providing end users or data consumers with brand new AGGREGATION objects [...]".
