Dear Monica,

Thanks for the effort on this use case. It is certainly not too tangential!
Our charter is indeed full of references to the fact that linked data is also a fantastic opportunity to cross the boundaries of traditional domains. We should certainly welcome all cases that help us capture this better.

Cheers,

Antoine
