Re: Proposal to include ISNI

Dear Lars:

Seeing your affiliation: It would be great if Dun & Bradstreet implemented

- a canonical URI schema for DUNs
and ideally
- return HTML via HTTP for these URIs 
and even better
- added at least basic markup to those pages.

We already have a property for DUNs in (imported from GoodRelations), see

This would allow the DUNs and your company to expand the strong position in the field of identifiers for commercial entities into the data marketing age. If you need more input on why this may be worthwhile, contact me by email, please.
