very good question/idea. The #swig on freenode channel uses something like this. So it's perhaps a script we could use.

The W3C is not a semantic web fan club. A lot of people there believe only in html or others only in javascript, and yet others in xml.
The director is very influential but he cannot order people to believe. Wider use cases keep gaining converts, and things like this will certainly be helpful. It would be nice of course if we could use WebID to authenticate ourselves here. That should be an aim.

Danbri mentioned in an earlier e-mail that if someone had a WebID plugin for MediaWiki that could be useful.
