shapes-ISSUE-122 (no-shapes-file): Should we postpone publishing a SHACL shapes file (indefinitely)? [SHACL Spec]

In a previous resolution

we decided to publish a (RDFS) vocabulary file plus a separate SHACL file with shape definitions. I no longer support the creation of the Shapes file, because it may cause long debates about details and thus take away resources that are better spent elsewhere. A shapes file is not needed by all SHACL engines, and could instead be published as open source projects outside of the WG.

If the WG has spare time at the end, we could revisit this, but for now I think we should get the essential stuff done and postpone this deliverable indefinitely.
