I agree with Jens' comments (especially the PDF with cut-and-pasted
RDF/XML in and the feedback process) and would add that the vocabulary
part and the SPARQL extensions should be separated out into two
documents. The vocabulary is useful on its own but to use it that way
you have to (mentally) filter out all the stuff about SPARQL when you
read the spec. We (EDINA as well as OKF) are tentatively using it
this way.

Also There must (well, technicaly, SHOULD, but to my mind it is a must
for something like this) be a document at the geosparql namespace URL
that returns something like the namespace description as well.

(And I wish we could find a better way than cramming the coordinate
system at the front of the WKTLiteral but admittedly can't see a
better way other than making an unwieldy forest of datatypes for
this purpose).
