Focusing on the "Status part this time"...

In fact we are not really free to put what we want in that section. Especially, all the stuff about W3C processes and patent policy will be controlled or re-inserted by the W3C at the very end.  so we don't have to attach too much attention to what should be there or not.

"Our" slot is where you have put:
[
This document was developed by the Library Linked Data Incubator Group.

Comments on this document are welcome. Please send them to the public mailing list public-lld@w3.org (archive).
]

We can write a couple of paragraph here, if we want... But I agree with your approach, i.e. puting most of our content and references in the abstract.

Nonetheless, I'd be in favour of keeping the last sentence, which you have struck out. public-lld@w3.org will remain active, and I have nothing against keeping some discussions happening there, especially if they are in relation with the report!

Cheers,

Antoine

>      The [http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/charter mission] of the
>      [http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/ W3C Library Linked Data Incubator
>      Group], chartered from May 2010 through August 2011, has been "to help increase
>      global interoperability of library data on the Web, by bringing together people
>      involved in Semantic Web activities -?" focusing on Linked Data -?" in the
>      library community and beyond, building on existing initiatives, and identifying
>      collaboration tracks for the future."  This final report of the Incubator Group
>      examines how Semantic Web standards and Linked Data principles can be used to
>      make the valuable information assets that library create and curate --
>      resources such as bibliographic data, authorities, and concept schemes -- more
>      visible and re-usable outside of their original library-world contexts on the
>      wider Web.

>      The Incubator Group began by eliciting reports on relevant activities from
>      parties ranging from small, independent projects to national library
>      initiatives (see the separate report, ''Library Linked Data XG: Use Cases''
>      @@@CITE@@@).  The use cases provided the starting point for the work summarized
>      in the report: an analysis of the benefits of library Linked Data; a discussion
>      of current issues with regard to traditional library data, existing library
>      Linked Data initiatives, and legal rights over library data; and
>      recommendations for next steps.  The report also summarizes the results of a
>      survey of current Linked Data technologies and an inventory of library Linked
>      Data resources available today (see also the more detailed report, ''Library
>      Linked Data XG: Datasets, Value Vocabularies, and Metadata Element Sets''

>      Key recommendations of the report are:
>      * That library leaders identify sets of data as possible candidates for early
>        exposure as Linked Data and foster a discussion about Open Data and rights;
>      * That library standards bodies participate in Semantic Web standardization,
>        develop library data standards that are compatible with Linked Data,
>        disseminate best-practice design patterns, and design enhanced user services
>        based on Linked Data capabilities;
>      * That data and systems designers create URIs for the items in library
>        datasets, connect library data standards to the Linked Data space, and develop
>        policies for managing RDF vocabularies and their URIs.
>      * That librarians and archivists preserve Linked Data element sets and value
>        vocabularies and apply their experience to the curation and long-term
>        preservation of Linked Data.
