Quite right.

But telling those user stories and marketing the solution bundles is  
not something that can realistically be done via the medium of *specs*.

In all fairness, the workshop was specifically about figuring out what  
changes and additions to the RDF core specifications make sense, and  
it was limited by a tight schedule. Better learning material and  
similar work items were not in scope.

W3C is running a number of XGs and IGs, which are in a position to  
produce marketing and teaching materials. Do you have proposals for  
concrete things that the existing groups should tackle?

Best,
Richard
