Thank you for your review of this.

I take your comments as addressing 3 main areas:

1. The relationship of formal and social meaning in RDF.  We have taken a 
view that this should be given a full airing and discussion in the last 
call period.  (I think that related to this is your observation that 
normative vs non-normative content is not well indicated.)

2. Consistency of descriptions and terminology.

3. Editorial.

As we are in a period of stabilizing the documents, your points relating to 
the latter areas will also be applied to the documents issued for 
last-call.  I have noted your message as a last-call comment against the 
document, and shall respond in greater detail when we deal with the points 
in detail.

There is one statement in your review that I just don't understand:
The list of uses in the motivations section has just about the best example
of non-parallel construction that I have ever seen.
I think this may be a stylistic matter, but I can't be sure.
