Hehe. I have this in my todo (literally). A website that exposes a  
google spreadsheet as SPARQL endpoint. Internally we use it as UI to  
quickly create config files et Al.
But It will remain in my todo forever...;)

must have an accompanying page/sheet/book with metadata (the NS or  
explicit URIs for cols).
