Nicholas, I wonder what will happen where there are already (supposed to be) "official" HTTP URIs for entities in these aggregations?
In the domain I'm researching right now, there's a proposal that curators of the "thing" also curate (yes, pretty much curate) its URI: http://www.cidoc-crm.org/URIs_and_Linked_Open_Data.html (see also discussion: http://cidoc.meta.se/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=192) Would the owner of the base URL be able to sign into Wikidata and just update the metadata there? In which case, wouldn't it get pretty close to being a WikiDOI?
