I don't expect them. For example, us (CTIC) would be happy to help.

Although this is an IG and cannot produce recommendation track work  
(i.e. standards), there are mechanisms at W3C we could use. Those that  
are Member organizations can develop something outside W3C and use the  
Member Submission process [1], or can start an XG [2]. We as group  
also have a liaison with the Semantic Web Activity (it's in the  
charter itself)[2] that could be of help in this case, too.

We should also talk to the LOD community (and having Richard around  
and other LOD Members, this should be more than easy :)

This is part of the sort of the discussion we would like us to have  
today.
