One think I'd be quite happy to see come out of this (and of RDFCore) is
design input for an RDF2 ("RDF-N", whatever...) specification. RDF 1.0 was
kept pretty simple, and it isn't suprising that we're pushing at the
limits of what we can get done with such a simple representational system.
I don't think it's the current work of RDFCore or WebOnt to do an "RDF 2",
but we certainly could start putting together a (use-cases driven) case
for why W3C might want to charter such work in the future. If that story
can be told in terms of use cases that arise from other areas of
W3C work (eg. CC/PP, Web Services, fomalisation of XML schema languages
etc.) so much the better.
