You might want to check out also:

It's a site we put together some time ago as an experiment/demo of RDF
Gateway capabilities. The crawler hasn't been active for some time but
roughly matches the stats you spoke of (500k docs, 20M triples, etc.). There
are several different interfaces - a human centric, a full rdfql query, and
an ontology-driven query builder.
