A URL shortener is just that, it provides shortened URL (which also 
denotes a Web Document). They don't provide an kind of canonical naming 
for Web Documents or other entity types.

DBpedia is just one of many data spaces in the LOD cloud. The cloud is 
inherently federated, like the Web itself. This will become clearer as 
the LOD cloud increases in density.
