Nice publication ( http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-dawg-uc/ )
In section, 4.1 Human-friendly Syntax, you say "There must be a text-based form of the query language which can be read and written by users of the language", and you list the status as "pending"
As background for section 4.1, you may be interested in the attached file, RDFQueryLangComparison1.txt .
It shows how to write queries in a form that includes English meanings.
The example queries can be run by pointing a browser to www.reengineeringllc.com ** .
Perhaps importantly, given the intricacy of RDF for nonprogrammers, one can get an English explanation of the result of each query.
HTH. Thanks for comments. -- Adrian
