Yes, I like these spongers, I think they can be very useful for bridging

Now structured data is great, but how do we work with those businesses
that have not yet the ability to handle structured REQUESTS

I wonder, would it be an idea to send purchase orders via EMAIL marked
up in the same RDFa that is used on the form.  So the workflow would
be something like:

1. Business makes up page in RDF(a)
2. User clicks "Buy" Button (or order, or indication)
3. Attempt to send structured data (including product references) to a
discovered endpoint, if one exists
4. If none found, use a bridge to access the an order gateway
5. Send an email in stuctured GR RDFa that shows that the customer is
interested in a product

Businesses can send responses in the same way ... perhaps we can have
escrow/advertising hubs specialising on this kind of process.
