What does this change to the current situation? RDF semantics is 
separated from the RDF model & syntax (except that the word "concepts" 
is used instead of "model") and it is Ok to implement one without the 
other and this is what people actually do. Not every applications that 
use RDF have to be reasoners (RDF parsers, W3C RDF validator, RDF 
editors, some triplestores, linked data browser, etc).

Moreover, the current RDF 1.1 Concepts explains much better than RDF 1.0 
Concept what the concepts are supposed to mean. So I expect that, with 
the new specs, it will be even easier to implement the model without 
bothering about the formal semantics.
