Michael, thanks for the suggestion. It looks, however, like not all of  
the offerings will be data sets. In some cases, the linkable output is  
generated on a single-resource basis through an API. What I *can* do  
is make a reference to voiD in the documentation, encouraging people  
to create a voiD entry if they do have a dataset in an appropriate  
format.
