Under this strict definition (which I am now inclined to accept, in that I
do believe misuse of these monikers can indeed derail the original LOD
vision), no linked data browser exists nor has anyone met the formidable
challenge of producing one (or please cite if you know of any). So I suppose
we will need a new classification for my browser :) Would you like to offer
suggestions?

Thanks so much for your patience in clarifying this point.
