Yes, I was going to put a comment in the "access" area to say *how*  
the data is available, e.g. a triple-store file, individual rdf/xml  
entries, etc. Perhaps this should be a section of its own?

I figured I would seed it with some of the few known sets, but by  
putting it on the public pages the creators of those data sets could  
add more detail or bring the entries up to date.
