Thanks Sandro, I'll try to think in this direction.

In the meantime, "classic" notions of security and web metrics need rethinking, at least from the US Federal Government standpoint. There is a little trouble in paradise which should not be ignored.

uri4uri presents a challenge.  Some US Government Gateway access points are "registered user" (e.g. the US Census API) and some are Public Sector Information (PSI) - "anonymous in spirit".  Both have URI substitutions. An example of the latter type is Weather.

or

The uri4uri link returns RDF/XML, or Turtle or N-Triples.

The mechanism works for a call to the Census API too, but that requires a user key, which implies and entails a previously accepted EULA (End User Licencing Agreement).

Subject: Making some Community Groups?
 
The charter [1] for the eGov Interest Group has two months left. At this point, I'd suggest people start thinking about joining or creating one or more Community Groups in which to continue talking.    See: http://www.w3.org/community/
