Hi All,

Two little questions for you all,

1: does anybody send HTTP Referer headers from their linked data clients 
and crawlers?
  - for instance if dereferencing an IRI in the object position of a 
triple, send the subject - and likewise for the other direction.

2: has anybody configured their linked data servers to read the value of 
the Referer header in order to find backlinks, dereference the value, or 
store the reverse links?

ps: apologies for the cc to semantic web, looking for answers from 
anybody who may have taken this approach at any time, not just recently.

Best,

Nathan
