Remember: if the data is not standards-based interpretable as RDF 
(though it doesn't have to *look* like RDF) then it does not support the 
goal of the Semantic Web, because it creates walled gardens, as

I prefer a definition of "Linked Data" that supports the goal of the 
Semantic Web.  I would venture to guess that that was the entire reason 
that TimBL coined the term: to support the goals of the Semantic Web.
