It's actually the best whois lookup that ive seen

Headers would be even better

The key thing i learnt about "advanced" linked data, is that RDF about a
URI is different from RDF as the content.  ie data vs meta data.

A good design cleanly separates the two.  Which is surprisingly uncommon on
the web.

+1 to renew
