Hi Vinod,

I fully agree and would urge strong consideration of linked data (and/or 
RDF), the benefits of having URIs for IDs (you can look it up to get 
more information about the thing) and having shared understanding of 
properties are almost unquantifiable. As you guys at DERI well know :)

Best,

Nathan
