When I finally am able to serve up the 500M-to-1B triples of U.S. census 
data myself, I can't wait until some dozen crawlers start looking for 
more information on each resource one by one... (I say each resource 
because if resources are dereferencable to documents about them, then it 
seems inevitable that crawlers will start dereferencing them.)
