I'm really excited by this, but am a tiny bit confused. I can't reconcile the stated audience (governments building data.gov.* sites) with the content, which appears to be aimed at agencies wanting to make their data available, presumably to be aggregated by such sites. (this is also needed, BTW)

Is this actually advice for data.gov.* builders to pass on to contributing agencies? Have I missed something entirely? Would like to have this clarified before I make some edits.
