Hi Max and all,

To my understanding the recommendation simply does not make any 
assumption about openness, but deals with identification in the Linked 
Data field.
It btw even notes explicitly (6.) "that such a service is not mandatory 
for the URI to be valid". Having URIs for museum objects available for 
everybody to cite is different from publishing the information about 
these objects as LOD...

I fully agree with Richard saying "Much as I would like all museum LD to 
be LOD, I wouldn't want to discourage good LD practice..."

And the issue is more complex than just open vs. non-open: What is open? 
Is any CC-license "open enough"? Or is CC0 (=public domain) mandatory to 
be labelled as LOD?

So this is exactly what I'd prefer to avoid: to mix up these two very 
different topics of identification and openness in the recommendation.

Best, Regine
