Again, the issue of giant/behemoths is somewhat irrelevant (imho).

The issue is where and how the Web evolves.

I believe we are adding the property oriented "Find" of the Linked Data 
Web aspect to the full text pattern oriented "Search" of the Document 
Web aspect.  The Web is simply evolving and so will the value it 
delivers etc..

Federation is making a comeback courtesy of the Linked Data aspect of
