Yes! That's my eternal concern about SPARQL endpoints. I know how 
expensive crawls are, across many dimensions. This is also why at the 
onset of the LOD project there was an agreed best practice re. 
publishing SPARQL endpoints and RDF dumps. In a sense, the cost of not 
having an RDF dump is a SPARQL crawl :-(

Of course, you would have known by now if we crawled your endpoint 
wholesale. For now, I simply add your endpoint to SPARQL-FED demos, 
which works fine :-)
