Good stuff - Got me distracted from my marking!
I have added some structure (I found someone had added imdb while I was
adding it myself :-) ).
We need to distinguish between the real supplier providing the data, and
someone else (such as me) providing a linked data version of it.
So, as an example, we have the CORDIS and NSF stuff, but we want the EU and
NSF to embrace and publish them. Having a resource that helps someone at the
right moment say: "Look what should be done - someone else has done what
they can, but now you need to take it on, and maybe you should talk to
them." might be good.
So I am assuming that this is for data owners who are supplying the data,
and does not usurp the other linked data page, but it could usefully have
such other links.
Cheers
Hugh
