I'd suggest exploring a lightweight but standards-based PHP app that 
could be dropped into a site, given a configuration and top-level 
directory, such that external sites could use a OAuth interface to 
negotiate write access, and then use AtomPub to post all kinds of data 
into that Web space.

(per my previous post)

Actually I forgot another benefit of this model: external sites could 
re-post data automatically, with no further user interaction. This 
solves a lot of "my foaf file ... i generated it once but didn't keep it 
up to date" problems...
