Very nice.

With reference to my last email, I noticed you declared FOAF, but did not use it.  Please at least consider not using FOAF (because if developers have it they will use it, if only just for fun) and consider instead a few DCAT "Authority" identifier tags.

Rationale: Long ago the US Entertainment Industry used actual phone numbers, etc. in films.  They quit after a number of lawsuits from the unfortunates who would be contacted in the middle of the night to answer for bad script writing and plot twists :)
