Yes, and how do you take advantage of the network effect without a 
Linked Data Space? Of course your desired effect could be Intranet or 
Internet scoped.

SugarCRM (easy map via RDF Views), SalesForce.com (via our Cartridge 
which maps to our on eCRM ontology), our own eCRM (which has had its own 
Ontology for eons), all end up as foundation for powerful Linked Data 
Data Spaces (public or private).

Thus, make the data space, and experience the network effect you seek :-)
