So you noticed there is a MsSQL dump :)
My real problem is not doing this part, I do it often.

The question was aimed at taking advantage of network effect.
1. If it is done, don't do it again
2. Reuse IDs which will eventually align my dataset with another
datasets. For example, someone will add images to these categories,
and my apps will benefit from that with a simple "import".

I think Virtuoso's RDF Views are best ( in fact, crucial ) when
dealing with a live dataset which is stored in an RDBMS and being
operated on by other apps. Like sugar CRM for example.
