We have changed the URIs for the geographic features to clearly 
distinguish between concept and document. The URL to use for Berlin is 
now http://sws.geonames.org/2950159/ the geonames server will then 
redirect you to the document http://sws.geonames.org/2950159/about.rdf

More about this change in our Blog : 
http://geonames.wordpress.com/2006/10/21/semantic-web-concept-vs-document/

We have also added linked data for 'contains', 'neighbours' and 'nearby' 
geonames features.
It could also be interesting to add a "nearby foaf" reverse geocoder 
returning the foaf URIs of people living in a certain area. What do you 
think?

Regards

Marc
