Okay, Tom please take note.

In the meantime, I've cloned and published the original spreadsheet [1]. 
Naturally, I've also made a CSV dump then then used LOD Refine to knock 
up mappings [2], a project [3], and a Turtle doc [4], all of which I've 
published via Dropbox [5] (mounted to my person ODS-Briefcase) and 
slurped into URIBurner [6].

Here are some notes, using nanotation [7], that provide additional 
provenance while also using this post as a Linked Open Data source:
