Great idea.

"the adoption of RDF systems inside exsisting Web infrastructures" is a
very important and I think too often understated goal.  I would also add
the adoption within XML processing systems.

There are no sample RDF files given alongside the use cases.  Without
RDF instance files, how can one test queries to make sure the given
examples are correct?  How can someone else really understand the query?

I'm about to go put up Versa examples, which unfortunately, since I have
no detail of the RDF models being queried, will have to be guesswork.
