Dan, well worth your effort and kudos.

I've always felt that there should not be a "Semantic Web" [1], just like there was no "XML Web" - its all about new technologies to make a better Web...

Fixing RDF alone may not be the solution either, without looking at all the other SW technology dependencies.

You are right, we need to look at the consumer-demand side for the next revisions....not drive from the KR-side...
