Hi Andreas,

Great piece of work.
A few comments :

The paper (2.4) states that "RDF subjects, predicates and most objects are
URLs themselves..."  - errm, not!
However it's interesting that you did get a good number of links using this
assumption.

I would suspect that there is a large number of HTML pages with linked RDF
data - in fact it might be worth comparing the difference in the number of
pages using the different embedding/linking techniques described in Sean
Palmer's paper (URL anyone?).

I'm a little confused about the crawling strategies (must reread), so
apologies if you're doing this already, I would imagine that filtering sites
so that outgoing links are only crawled if the current page has asssociated
RDF would significantly reduce the bulk of non-RDF associated pages without
removing too many good links.

It would be nice to see an amalgamated vocabulary containing terms and their
usage frequency (and clashes), this might also be a test of your assertion
about a universal vocabulary being impossible.

Cheers,
Danny.
