Danny & All:

Of course there's been a lot of work on this subject over the years. You 
can find one nice piece on analogical reasoning here [1].

But for linked data to become useful it's important to refine our 
understanding of web architecture beginning with the language of 
resources. I'm currently working up a piece for my blog on this topic. 
Stay tuned.

That being said, I have recommended that the US and UK governments 
engage in creating a Linked Data roadmap. One essential element of that 
road map would include a lifecycle for how linked data publishers and 
linked data consumers could work towards the goals of linked data 
without the oversight of a directed authority.
