It's not about building a better system.  A subset of current isn't more 
or better - it's less.

Success means people publishing data.

Success means people communicating how the semantic web can be used for 
linked data.

Success means other people investing (often personal) time in (open 
source) software and supporting users on mailing lists.

We owe it to all those people because they are the new stakeholders. 
They have skin in the game.
