Quick question.

I've lookup a URI using your service:

I can't seem to find an graph level relationships with its original 
sources (DBpedia, BBC etc.) . Is this me, your solution design and 
implementation choices, or something else?

At the very least, I would expect to be able to navigate from your 
linked data space to other linked data spaces, starting with your URIs.

Also, will you be using <link/> in our HTML pages (re. auto-discovery 
patterns) or is it strictly content negotiation? Ditto RDFa within your 
HTML pages etc..
