Leigh,

Very nice!

btw - Are there going to be an actual RDF data dump URLs to accompany 
the SPARQL endpoints re. dataincubator.org? If so, then updates the 
following pages would be useful to the community at large:

1. http://esw.w3.org/topic/DataSetRDFDumps -- for RDF dumps if they are 
going to be provided
2. http://esw.w3.org/topic/SparqlEndpoints -- for SPARQL endpoints
