My understanding was that the extensive comments you made prior to last 
call were not addressed at that time in order to get the revised 
documents out for general comments by others without delay.  I can't 
claim to speak for all the editors, but I certainly have not been 
overlooking them, and I suspect the other editors feel the same way. 
Your comments about the Primer are on my internal change list, just as 
if they had been made as last call comments [NB:  I did ask some 
questions concerning clarifications of some of those original comments, 
some of which I haven't had any response to].

Concerning your "doing more of the work of the RDF Core WG", it seems to 
me you have to decide whether the WG will concur with and fully address 
your concerns to your satisfaction without any further input from you or
