OK. I've read the first 1/4 of it and skimmed the rest for now.
lots to digest. 

A couple of questions:

- If you embed a domain name in all your URIs, does your stored
rdf data need to be mass-updated if/when the site changes domain
names? Or does appropriate use of Qnames make this a non-issue?

- The primer is long on "how" and short on "why",
even in the example applications section.
Are you advocating RDF primarily to allow third parties
to do unspecified cool stuff with the data?  Or for the
internal implementation of the website? Or both?
AFAICT the advantages lie with the former.  Could you give an 
example of such a third-party app?  I'm not really coming up with 
compelling use cases.

thanks,

PW
