Ah, how about some "validation of the people", which is also import.

I've got the service which consumes sha1's and returns foaf information:

what's returned may well be gzipped, and sent with the wrong mime-type
(it depends if it's coming from the cache or is generated live), this is
intentional so the cached data is not readily available to other
crawlers, be they good ones or bad ones. but if you gunzip it, you'll
see it's some constrained form RDF.

You could use this to auto fill data, and get the person to check who it
is etc.
