To clarify one more time:

1. URIs to a master RDF archive is an integral part of this kind of system
2. The approach to loading this data will more than likely be identical 
to the Linking Open Data project's data sets page, by this I mean the 
URIs to the RDF data will be listed by the various Data Contributors

The longevity of OpenLink should not be basis of the these procedures.

The core philosophy of Open Access to Data and sharing said data on the 
Web, is what should drive our approach. This is what I've always 
envisioned the Web to be about :-)

BTW - DBpedia is a good working example of the principles espoused above.

Also note, the system can easily be hosted on a W3C system (I also 
offered this from day one).
