I have been monitoring the responses on FriendFeed [0], and some are
keen to use the OpenData icons. However, the icons seem fine with
requirement 1 and 3, they do not really encourage people to apply
principle 2 and 4. Just an observation...

Second thing is a request about the HTML of the endorsement field...
right now, all form fields are put into one <span class="signature">
element... might three fields perhaps be split up into separate <span>
elements, perhaps like:

<span class='signature'><span class='name'>Egon Willighagen</span>,
<span class='affiliation'>Uppsala University</span>, <span

I would even go as far to use RDFa and FOAF for these bits of information:

<span xmlns:foaf="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/" class='signature'
typeof="foaf.Person"><span rel='foaf:name'>Egon Willighagen</span>,
<span class='affiliation'>Uppsala University</span>, <span

That would very much make it more mashup-able, more machine readable,
and those mashups in turn would be good show cases of what Open Data
is really about: reuse. (Not sure how to fit the affiliation into
