WebID ACLs and SemanticPingbacks should enable construction of this 
distributed graph. I should be able to make a group in my data space 
(which I can) and automatically ping members about their membership. 
Ping receivers simply have the option to reciprocate in their respective 
data spaces. In addition, you can also make a shared resource your data 
space that's WebID ACL protected; thus, given a resource URL and 
associated ACLs I should be able to edit my own data etc...

These patterns were implemented and verified more than a year ago, but 
since then its been down to ODS and Data.FM as the only showcases re. 
the WebID ACL protected resource example. I am yet to conclude a 
SemanticPing example with a non ODS data space based participant.
