I took a look at the Refine code
<http://code.google.com/p/google-refine/source/browse/trunk/main/webapp/modules/core/scripts/reconciliation/recon-manager.js#81>
and it looks like its making a JSONP call when it tries to register your
new recon service. However, your service doesn't seem to support JSONP
right now. The following request:

    http://acm.rkbexplorer.com/crs/reconcile/?callback=abc123


should return something like this:

    abc123({ "name" : "Netflix Reconciliation through Freebase", ... });


If you get that working you should at least be able to register it in
Refine.
