+1 (best I can do).  FWIW, the day buying your way in ceases to be the certain method of acceptance will be a very good day for all.

Hugh suggested that I post this. 
 
We are currently working with other museums aligning our catalogue
data using the CIDOC-CRM ontology. We can now run single federated queries based
on semantic alignment without the need to insert specific linking triples. When
we applied to advertise our site on the LOD cloud we were turned down because
we hadn’t inserted specific links to other data sources. I realise that I
could just stuff in a few links to Dbpedia to get accepted -  but given
that we can harmonise data to a very high degree with another open CRM RDF data
source perhaps we should still be allowed formal acceptance to the open data
community.
