Excellent!  Thanks Boris.  The qualitative difference between you links [3] and [4] illustrate my "All (Government) RDF is Local" point nicely, although I might want to rephrase that as "All (Commonwealth) RDF is Local.

data.gov recently published geospatial data (Territorial Limits) on all components (9 I think) of the (US) Pacific Remote Wildlife Refuges.  data.gov has a "[4]" but it needs a "[3]" :o)
