Requirements for a possible "RDF 2.0"

Without volunteering myself to be such a contact, I have (as both a 
users of many RDF implementations and a W3C chair and I suppose a 
self-declared semantic web expert) been the recipient of a lot of 
complaints and suggestions regarding the design and implementation of 
RDF, and at ISWC a few months ago I suggested to Ivan that we start 
discussing starting a working group that would investigate a next 
version of RDF.

This discussion is happening in several places already, and we thought 
this was the best place to house that discussion for now.

A workshop on this subject is also in the planning, more news on that in 
a week or two.

I suppose we don't really need to discuss whether we should investigate 
an "RDF 2.0", but rather what kinds of requirements various RDF users 
have that they would like to be considered (I'd like this thread to be 
less "+1" and "-1" messages, and more "I'd like to see RDF support x...")
