D3 is indeed a great tool even on the model side, while is often considered
"only" for the presentation part.

@Kev: having D3 models + RDF /DCAT would be great! :-)

Has simile exhibit been already analyzed too, on the list?
If the idea is to gathering their experience importing/manipulating tabular
data, usage pattern and so on, I suggest to consider exhibit too, as it can
use json as well as CSV data [2], and has an interesting concept of
internal "relation mapping" [3] which may be useful to this context, I
suppose (I think about json-ld mapping and so on).

(Sorry in case it was probably already mentioned on the list, but I was not
able to found an explicit reference on the ML archive, so I prefer taking
the risk of citing it again :-)
