Thanks Chris.  My two cents as the Devil's advocate:

1) "Public data policy and practice will be clearly driven by the public and businesses who want and use the data..." This seems to be a dangling key for businesses although I'm not convinced the same key will be available to individual consumers of said data.

I thin it depends on how we use the word "public".  A lot of public groups that can't be classified as businesses have shown themselves to be eager users of public data.

The occasional individual might be interested, but I can see lots of community groups getting involved.

My 2c worth.

Kerry
