Bernard, Tom, Jodi,

Thanks a lot for your feedback on this!

In fact we want to make our own LLD version of the LOV cloud, which in principle should imply re-using the data you've assembled, checking it, completing it... or simplify it :-)
We'll of course keep everyone posted, *if* we manage to find time for this.

I have some hope that if we restrict it to the smaller sets of vocabularies used in our cases [1], it will remain manageable.
