Apart from the inherent advantages for a particular vertical application area to get a better familiarity with a particular W3C technology, these groups also provide valuable feedbacks on the technologies themselves. Vertical applications may bring forward specific and sometimes highly non-trivial use cases, requirements in terms of, say, the expressivity of vocabulary or query languages, efficiency considerations for inferences, etc. Work on the second generations of languages like OWL2 or SPARQL1.1, or the work on R2RML, has been greatly motivated by the feedbacks provided by these vertical applications.
