Then the official ESWC2008 site (eswc2008.org) is not following that 
ideal best practice since it's missing 2, 3, and 4, and as a user with 
just a standard-compliant browser there's little I can do to verify 1. 
Is this diagnose correct? If so, will you please tell the eswc2008 site 
admin to get with the program? :-)

We all love to see more open linked data, of course, so it'd be nice if 
*SWC conference sites all lead as examples. In doing so, maybe we'll 
discover the real motivations (or severe lack thereof) for publishing SW 
content, and the challenges of publishing (e.g., tedious manual or 
complex programmatic process to get lat/lng coordinates).
