You are right that restricted data integration is also in the realm of
things. But the emphasis of the moves in the US and in the UK is really
on the public side and, I suspect, so is the EU's interest in the matter...
Linking Public Governmental Data?
Publishing and Interlinking Public Governmental Data? (A bit longish,
but less cumbersome)

I told you I just may be pedantic...:-) And you are right that
formalizing this more for this project is a bit over the top...
But: if we list all the persons and their respective organizations that
we collectively represent in this group (which you seem to suggest),
that sounds like a fine idea. And it is also perfectly o.k. if, say,
Michael Hasenblas does not only list DERI but also the LATC project he
is coordinating. But then the text should not single out individual
Does the structure of the project proposal allow for such a list? If
not, I guess we can simply link a page to the text. That may be the best.
