It's not really intended to be an introduction, so much as a complete list
of use cases that people want the spec to cover.

The rdfa.info wiki page was invaluable in the creation of the list I
posted this morning -- I used that, as well as blog comments and about
15,000 lines' worth of e-mails, in the creation of the list. I tried to
make sure every use case mentioned was covered, so if anyone posted a use
case to this mailing list, to the wiki, or to blogs on the subject in the
past few months, that is not listed in that e-mail, I apologise -- please
let me know so that I can add them. (It may be that I didn't understand
the use case -- there's a couple I don't get, noted with "(why?)" in the
e-mail sent this morning.)
The more concrete the use cases the better. Users do concrete things.
