4star ... use URIs to identify things, so that people can point at your stuff (optional RDF)
13:30:25 [mhausenblas]
5star ... link your data to other or more authoritative data to provide context (one serialisation needs to be RDF)
13:30:43 [sandro]
(whether RDF is required at 4 stars or not until 5 is an open issue -- waiting for Tim)
