We have ODE links at the bottom of the HTML+RDFa pages, son based on the 
example above use:
http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/ode/?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fsws.geonames.org%2F6286786%2F

Note, the link above is attempting to describe the Web doc first, and 
then its content. Thus, if you don't make an association between the 
container and its items, this page would be sparse. To prove the point 
further, go to the bottom of the page, then click on the ODE link:
http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/ode/?uri=http://education.data.gov.uk/placeholder-id/parliamentaryConstituency/Lewes

Note, the resource above (Lewes doc) is protected, so bear that in mind 
re. the project graph.

Of course not :-)

There is a bigger issue in play re. RDF publication in general, the 
tendency is to forget that the RDF resource is a container of data 
items, and there needs to be a triple expressing the relationship e.g. 
foaf:primarytopic or foaf:topic.
