Hello,

Yes, I was considering that - and then started thinking that I was modelling
the wrong thing.

The "has hyperlink to" predicate would apply to documents, not things
(although thinking about hyperlinks between real-world places is pretty
amazing!).

So I guess it would have to be something more like:
<http://dbpedialite.org/things/17867> has_hyperlink_to
<http://dbpedialite.org/things/6883> .

Rather than:
<http://dbpedialite.org/things/17867#id> has_hyperlink_to
<http://dbpedialite.org/things/6883#id> .

So maybe that is what I will do.
