I meant cross linkage across the URIs produced by the RDFizers which 
could smarten the pathways in the Linked Data graphs. I trying to get 
smarter and higher level linkage going so we have a much more coherent 
Linked Data Space for music.

Of course I know you are using URIs from geonames, MBZ etc.. I looked up 
Libre.FM URIs before the ink on that project was dry :-) The project 
founder (Matt Lee) met with me at the last Cambridge Semantic Web 
Gathering etc..
