William,

Congrats!

Next step is Data Wiki dimension, courtesy of WebID. This enables group 
maintenance of data i.e., someone spots an error, makes a change e.g. in 
their own named graph, post data space management approval, changes go 
to the main graph, if need be.

Anyway, great stuff! The foundation context for Data Wikis is now taking 
shape :-)
