The Entity Reconciliation Community Group has been proposed:

--------------------------------------------------

Matching entities across data sources using different identifiers and
formats is a pervasive issue on the web.

This group revolves around developing a web API that data providers can
expose, which eases the reconciliation of third-party data to their own
identifiers. OpenRefine's reconciliation API is used as a starting
point. Our goals are to document this existing API, share our
experiences and lessons learnt from it, propose an improved protocol in
the view of promoting it as a standard, and build tooling around it.

A description of the existing protocol can be found here:
https://github.com/OpenRefine/OpenRefine/wiki/Reconciliation-Service-API

--------------------------------------------------

You are invited to support the creation of this group:
  http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed#reconciliation

Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and
people can join to begin work. Once launched, the group will no longer
be listed as "proposed"; it will appear in the list of current groups:
  http://www.w3.org/community/groups/

In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account. To request one:

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires
the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on
site-comments@w3.org.

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
