I thought Kingsley is the only one seriously suggesting that we communicate in
triples. Let's take one step back to the proposal of making research datasets
machine readable with RDF.

Please go to http://crcns.org/NWB

Have a look at an example dataset:


"The total size of the data is about 433 GB compressed"

Even if you do not use triples for all of that (which would be insane),
specifying a "structured data container" is a very difficult task.

So instead of talking about setting the bar higher, why not just help the 
people over there with their problem?
