Oh yeah.  RDFa Curies break an Outer Join unless you write one Outer Join on the key (Name) and go back and insert the "key" properties.  This table is an abstract 'DATA.GOV' Top Level Domain, with a (terminology) language CURIE.

There are 901 rows, for a possible 676 Names - some of which are null (blank) ... hmmmm inner-outer joins :o)

Look at sequence 3.  This is an old ISO Code for Ascension Island which is now included in St. Helena, but with it's own Domain Sponsor.  So, in the abstract, ICANN "created" a State in the St. Helena Federal hierarchy.  That is why it shows up in the table, although the dct:Language Class (RDFa CURIE) is empty.

The Google Knowledge Graph contains an unknowable number of this type "creation".  I entitled this "Spookville" because the Intelligence Community most likely knows all about this, but isn't saying because they are not in the Education Business.

I also finding striking, along with the humour and irony in this thread, that no one has 
said the obvious about how this change has propagated:the propagation was unpredictable.
Tim Finin writes about GKG here with links to deeper discussions.

As to my own comments they come out of ideas I am developing about the relationship of ourselves as people to such services.

What ever their view about the individual (if any) engineers generally exclude the individual from their view of the engineering.
But in this context, of course, the individual is reintroduced as a statistical entity and as a linked entity.
Meanwhile, the psychologist is concerned with beliefs, intentions and desires.
There is much to be said about this.
