Not really. In a talk that short, you need a focal 
point ("and *this* is why you really need RDF [or
something like it]"). Examples from the B2B arena
seemed like a natural fit with Java developers. 

What other examples were you thinking of ?

There have been discussions. And they've been (somewhat) bulky.
My original question may boil down to "what's the process
for converting mailing-list ruminations into an actual next
version (and is that process under way, and how far along is
it, and ....) ?"
