Hi Giovanni,

> Will you be taking off the diagram those that are NOT online regularly?

could you please be a bit more precise and clearly say which datasets you
are talking about.

Which datasets do not provide dereferencable URIs anymore?

(Linked Data and the LOD diagram is not about SPARQL endpoints)

A constructive approach, which I guess would be highly appreciated by the
community, would be that you directly mark these datasets on CKAN using
the tags that are proposed at the end of this page

Cheers,

Chris
