Hi!

Last year at the Semantic Web in Libraries conference I presented
Beacon, a text-based format to transport large numbers of uniform links
[1]. Beacon has been used especially to exchange links based on the
German authority file GND to records in library catalogs, bibliographies
and other resources [2]. Although the primary use case was to exchange
plain HTML links, Beacon can also be used as dense serialization format
for specific kinds of RDF graphs with many uniform links between two
data sets. I am about to finalize the specification to be later
published as RFC:

http://gbv.github.com/beaconspec/beacon.txt 

Corrections and implementations are very welcome:
