the idea seems interesting. But there is no apparent way of collecting 
back all the data. Having contributed in the past to projects who then 
keep the data so even I cannot get it back except by tracking through 
each page, I have decided not to do that again.

I am interested in the underlying architecture of the information - 
does it use SKOS or something similar? I think it would be interesting 
to convert the W3C glossary's current vocab to use SKOS, which seems to 
be gaining rapid acceptance in many areas.

If the data were available as a SKOS thesaurus this would be very 
interesting to me. If it could also read existing SKOS, that might 
motivate others to offer free data that can be used from whichever 
interface people like most.

(fr-AU: Je veux pas mettre des données dans un système qui ne me permet 
a recuperer toutes les données soumises. Et je me demande comment les 
infos sont stockées. J'y participerais s'il y avait la possibilité de 
télécharger les données comme fichier SKOS, qui offre des autres 
chemins interessants.)
