OK, I added an issue to the doc, so we are sure to track.

There is a link to the relevant section in Concepts. I think that should
be enough. I'd like to do only the minimal changes.

Do you mean to link all terms to the relevant part in Semantics? I don't 
think the Semantics document has anchors for all these. I suggest to 
leave it as is.

I think the risk of me creating inconsistencies is higher :), so suggest 
not to do this.

There is nothing in the new Primer on this. So this is the only option.

Updated the link to point to Sec. 2.8 of Turtle.

Not sure what you mean. This was updated by Peter (originally, it 
pointed to the wrong example). We have no example of the use of 
rdf:value in the new Primer.

Deleted. Also added links from all table entries to the relevant

Let's do this at REC time, and then insert the same list in all docs.

For me "Other vocabulary" looks more appropriate.

Thanks for the review! Editor's draft has been updated.
