Indeed.  One thing that the CG could do that would be very worthwhile
would be to finish and publish the use cases document.  Part of
finishing the document would be to indicate for each use case how to
use RDF* to handle the use case or say that RDF* cannot handle it.

Another useful thing to do would be to add more to the introduction of
the RDF* document describing how RDF* works in an informal manner,
giving a rationale for this behaviour, and mentioning some
alternatives.  This would be helpful for readers and particularly
helpful for new members of any subsequent group that will be working on
further specification of RDF*.
