As an industry consultant and prospective consumer of LOD, I applaud the
idea of an LOD 'Front Page' and this first pass addressing consumer needs.  
Here is some thoughts of how it might be easy to implement (sooner is good),
integrate into what consumers already do, and take advantage of the
wonderful visual side of linked data:
First pass, could you make it a browser add-in, that says 'oh, this is
RDF/OWL data' and offer a display option as the visual graph, in context
(full graph, or centered segment - almost like a network management map that
scopes around the 'big' map -- sort of an OpenView for LOD);
With either pass-over or right click, tell the internal format, and entry
points - URI to 'front page' or domain/entity, SPARQL endpoints and API
interfaces, other notes;
Drill-down ability by double click (as now) on any map entity, and have
another graph display of the 'sub-domain' (and down as many levels as the
domain design);
Ability to 'log in' to a domain with use privs for CRUD on entities/objects
(this may be too hard, without more standardization around authorization,
but a desire in the long run.
 The more familiar you make it, in KISS mode, the faster the uptake on real
usage.  It might not be 'optimal', but almost immediately useable.  Then we
can get to some of the harder problems, like using multiple inconsistent
overlapping domain data, transforms to and from legacy systems, etc.
Just a wishlist  from the realside, hope this contributes.  And thanks for
thinking of how we take advantage of the emergent LOD cloud, how rich our
world is becoming.

Subject: Potential project: Supporting the Linked Data Consumer 
eGov IG,
On the LD-Demo call today I suggested we should focus some effort on the
consumer side of linked data.  As requested I have put together a rough
draft project outline to expand the idea, please take a look here:
Your comments are very welcome as well as suggestions as to existing
resources that can help satisfy the needs expressed.
