Dear Tom,

let me try to answer this question in a more general way. In the future, we honestly consider to map all data on the web to the DBpedia ontology (extending it where it makes sense). We hope that this will enable you to query many data sets on the Web using the same queries.

As a convenience measure, we will get a huge download server that provides all data from a single point in consistent formats and consistent metadata, classified by the DBpedia Ontology. Wikidata is just one example, there is also commons, Wiktionary (hopefully via DBnary), data from companies, DBpedia members and EU projects.

all the best,

What, from your point of view, is the practical consequence of these different design choices? How do the end results manifest themselves to the consumers?
