I vote yes.

Off topic questions:

Dear All,

Is there any linked data infrastructure supporting the CIDOC CRM on the Web?

The ongoing Open Kunstkammer Data project [1] uses URIs such as
"http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/E53_Place" etc. [2]
which are not derefereceable.

I think, it's time to establish an IT-infrastructure that will support different
implementations/versions of the CRM in the LOD-cloud.

The way I can help here is to establish such an infrastructure on our
CLL [3] server and use the "openmeseumdata.org" domain.
Anyone could then use URIs such as
"http://openmeseumdata.org/cidoc/E39_Actor" or similar to get RDF
desriptions of the
corresponding CRM entities/properties.

But, to my opinion, it is much better to use an "official" domain
(e.g. "data.cidoc-crm.org", "ontology.cidoc-crm.org" etc.)

in order to deploy CRM's URIs on the web of data.

Any opinions, suggestions?

Best regards,
