There's nothing like overtly or covertly unveiling "opportunity cost" 
palpability, when trying to unveil the virtues of any concept, to people 
charged with running a business :-)

This is the very thinking behind the "owl:shameAs" scheme we use in the 
Linked Data compliant proxy URIs generated by our Sponger's  RDFizer 
cartridges i.e., show people the impressions they are missing out on by 
providing them with a hint URI, that exposes a suggested data slot, 
within their respective data spaces.
