Right, I agree !

"A priori", all the proposed use cases should be relevant for multimedia. It may happen that the
problems highlighted by the authors does not reflect the multimedia semantics issue, but in this
case, we should tell them how to rephrase the problem statements.

With respect to the Tagging UC, the authors insist a lot on the personomy management problems,
being more a general Semantic Web problem than multimedia specific. In this sense, I agree with
both Stamatia and your comment.
I think that the authors will therefore now focus on the first sub-problem they highlight, namely
the syntactic interoperability problem when one want to share (semantically) his tags with
another platform / user / etc.
