Thanks Phil.  Jeanne, I'm sorry I was not aware of your, um, credibility problems with NASA Virtual Worlds[1].  Navassa Island is a Wildlife Refuge in the Caribbean.  Just the barren rock you wished to borrow.  Unfortunately, economic only accounting metrics prevail in the press.  Government territory is factored out for statistical purposes.  Examples in the wild abound ... the Chairman of Oracle bought nowhere near 98% of a Hawaiian Island, if you include the 200 mile Economic Exclusion Zone, and few saw coming the irrelevance in Law of the Commerce Clause in the recent Health Care decision.  My point is that data silo's in the Public Domain at the State, Local and Municipal Levels are invisible by this technique as well.  In addition, Social Networking/Crowdsourcing are selections to a minority not elections by a majority.  The majority is always 'silent' and in fact not engaged.  These two factors make market evaluations doubly suspect. 
 In the Public Domain you can (and I suggest you do) level the tops of the peer silos empirically before extracting depth[4, 5].  This gives a more inclusive picture of the stewardship of Public Spaces.  New York City is without peer, but New York County is not and New York State is not. So, it is important that intermediate types be included with data sets, although not strictly speaking provenance.  Top Level Domains using exclusively economic measures to select levels of "interest" work very differently than data stewards and Governments [2,3].  

[1] They probably just assumed you wanted a Full Moon.  No one howls at a New one.
