Sandro,

Is there an agreement re. going back to the original TimBL meme re. 
Linked Data i.e, one that replaces:
"When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using the 
standards (RDF*, SPARQL)"

with the original that read:
When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information.

Either way, let's close this critical matter :)
