Hi Steve,
as I replied to Libby (but did not include all mailing lists): The whole 
data set is served from currently 100 smaller files, which will be 
broken down to 1000 files shortly. For various reasons however, we don't 
want to serve one file per element, because that will create a huge 
overhead - the individual data sets are rather small (a few triples per 
item). Having one million micro-files is hard to manage. Also, since we 
want to stay within OWL DL, we would have to duplicate proper ontology 
header meta-data a million times.

Thus, we use a (rather large) set of rules in the .htaccess file to 
serve that part of the data set that contains the element you are 
actually looking for. You will receive a few more triples than you need, 
but simply discard those ;-)
