This is a good point... Maybe these badges could go along with the
openness icons?

Good job, I like the look of these badges.
However, I'm wondering: will the people who have a 0 or 1-star dataset 
put a badge on their Web page? It's like putting a badge saying "HTML 
page /almost/ valid: 3 errors only!"
In the end, I guess only the 5 star badge will be proudly displayed by 
dataset owners.
Still, I think those badges have a utility, but not for the dataset 
owners. I can imagine a web page listing existing, independent datasets 
(such as [1]) where each row has the corresponding badge. This way, one 
can immediately and visually determine the level of interoperability of 
the dataset.
