Hmmm -- the LOD2 proposal was written a year ago and submitted some
time in the Spring. We did not even meet or talk to Paola until the
summer and we've been working on open gov data stuff for years
(including registries of services and resources ...)

I don't see that we need to specifically address Paola's allegations
by doing anything.  Of coursee, it may be per se useful to do this
stuff -- in which case we should do it (though this is it is not a
discussion we need to have on the board list :) ).
