Actually, Steven Bird suggested something along these lines last year, and
I brought this proposal to an OWLG telco. In the end, we thought having a
meeting at some conference to work out the details might be a good idea,
but this still has to happen.
From the LLOD perspective, we would encourage any attempt in this
direction because it represents a new data set and may be the best way to
establish a best practice for LLOD metadata specification. From the OLAC
perspective, it would open up their data to a new community, and
subsequently synergies between their data and other data sets may be
possible that we don't currently think of. So, in general, bringing OLAC
to the LLOD has a lot of potential.
