Hi Michael,

An immense breakthrough, thanks!

Tomorrow I will definitely show it to our MarCom team, I bet they'll
finally fall in love with linked data. The risk is that they start building
URIs patterns that matching the company's style guide... but I guess the
inconsistency of our URIs is an acceptable sacrifice.

Shall we call the web of colors Web 4.0?

Thanks!
Colin
