For our english friends: can we do it for MEPs?

yes! We talked a bit last week about creating neutral URIs for
procedures, MEPs etc. sourrounding the European Parliament and
Commission. This would be a great way to make the databases of
itsyourparliament, parltrack and others interlinkable and to allow
those of us who work on national level legislation to link upstream
without settling on one service.

My proposed domain name would be parliamentdata.eu which is still
free. What do people think?

p.s. Really this is a job for the publications office but what the heck.
