Dear Martin, dear all,

Apologies for the very late comment (however just in time for the 
deadline May 30th ;-))

I have one simple recommendation: Please replace "Linked Open Data" by 
"Linked Data" throughout the whole documents (and URL).

First because Linked Data is the original term as it was invented by TBL 
if I'm not mistaken.

Second because there is a serious debate ongoing on what "Open" means in 
Linked Open Data.
E.g. according to the current view in Europeana office it means that all 
data to be published as LOD has to be public domain whereas many 
representatives of Europeana museum projects do question this requirement.

Though this might appear to be a Europeana specific discussion I think 
there is no point for CIDOC to potentially cause confusion about the issue.

Best wishes
