Hi Bill,

I’d suggest taking one of the use cases in the use case document:

  http://w3c.github.io/csvw/use-cases-and-requirements/

and creating a metadata document for it based on the metadata document:

  http://w3c.github.io/csvw/metadata/

as a good way of getting to understand the use cases that we have and the current ideas we have around the metadata that can help validate or display or convert CSV files.

You could then take that use case and try to frame what an ideal JSON/XML/RDF representation of the same CSV data would look like.

The framework that Dan’s put together for structuring these explorations here:

  https://github.com/w3c/csvw/tree/gh-pages/examples/tests

describes how to structure this work.
