Yes you're right, eventually we will be able to provide casual users
with such tools.
Note that faceted browsing is already perhaps usable for the task I describe.

However, my post was mainly aimed to the data side. A programmer ( one
of us ) could craft a specific visualization for this if the data was
available.

I think it would be great to have such visualization, or provide the
fodder for others to craft it. This could depict the current state of
the Linked Data battlle in commercial land ;)

Putting the wins up for others to see is always positive. Putting them
out in Linked Data for real time consumption is interesting in many
ways.

Thanks,
A
