David,

To this specific point you made:

"I believe there need to be a mechanism for rewarding RDF publishing, or 
scolding for forgetting. Do you have that mechanism in-place? "

My response:

1. Reward for RDF publishing  comes down to the benefits or opportunity 
costs associated making a structured data contribution to the Web. If 
you contribute structure you open up the possibility for  collective 
participation by others in the Web Community (users and developers). If 
you don't,  then you incur the opportunity costs of having to do it all 
yourself.  Expanding my response is best done by reading some of my most 
recent posts about the emergence of structure on the Web in general etc..

2. The mechanism ultimately comes down to degrees to which relevant 
things are discovered in a given space e.g spaces espousing the virtues 
of Linked Data should honor our best practices and radiate the values of 
Linked Data, if they don't, then at the very least, as a community, we 
can flag omissions etc..  I pinged you about a little tweak to you exhibit

Now, if my responses are not in line with your question, and I am not at 
ESWC 2008, but absolutely honor the value of discourse driven problem 
resolution, please extend this conversation via some very specific 
suggestions etc..

What would you like to see in place in relation to the questions you've 
posed? Assuming my responses aren't clear enough?
