Each time I am re-reading the spec I stumble across the complexity of 
this very first example. Is this supposed to:
a) serve as a human-readable starting point
b) show off some cool features (that motivate SHACL)
c) provide a walk-through of key features?

I suggest we select a much simpler example - something like validating 
instances of schema:Person and just a single shape.

There will be plenty of other examples in other documents (tutorials and 
primers) in the future. Not our job.
