Nice. I think this is a good idea generally. Reciprocal links in FOAF
descriptions doesn't seem like a particularly quick way to bootstrap
into a very large data set. It'd be nice if there were some
centralised places from which FOAF data could be grabbed, as well as
making use of data thats already 'nearly FOAF'.

Thats not to say we need a single centralised location, just that a
few 'hubs' would help build the network. As well as providing
well-known places for people to link their FOAF files from.

Thats one reason I suggested the FOAFBulletinBoard (which seems to be
growing quite nicely) and have previously suggested grabbing data from
places like Advogato.
