All,

With support from Jeff and no objections, I have committed the edits [1] for a
paragraph that now reads:

    '''Linked Data'''.  "Linked Data" refers to data published in accordance
    with [http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html principles] designed
    to facilitate linkages among datasets, element sets, and value
    vocabularies.  Linked Data uses
    [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Resource_Identifier Uniform Resource
    Identifiers (URIs)] as globally unique identifiers for any kind of resource
    -- analogously to how identifiers are used for authority control in
    traditional librarianship.  In Linked Data, URIs may be
    [http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3987 Internationalized Resource Identifiers
    (IRIs)] -- [http://www.w3.org/International/articles/idn-and-iri/ Web
    addresses] that use the extended set of natural-language scripts supported
    by [http://unicode.org Unicode].  Linked Data is expressed using standards
    such as the [http://www.w3.org/RDF/ Resource Description Framework (RDF)],
    which specifies relationships between things -- relationships that can be
    used for navigating between, or integrating, information from multiple
    sources.

Going once, going twice...?
