Okay, but the need for dumps is working its way into the fundamental 
guidelines for Linked Open Data.

As you can imagine (and I have raised these concerns on the UK Govt 
mailing list a few times), this project is high profile and closely 
associated with Linked Open Data; thus, unclarity about these RDF dumps 
is confusing to say the very least.

Anyway, I am set for now, will wait and see re. what happens post 
election etc..
