Yes, and No.

Remember, I did try to partition the LOD-Cloud by Warehouse, 
Sponged/RDFized, and Crawled, but nobody would have it.

What we have right now is the LOD-Cloud Warehouse. Also note, when you 
look at the VoiD graph you are seeing Graph Group IRIs (containers of 
Graphs that contain Triples), so you need to drill down a level or two.

Also, if you feel a dataset dump is missing from the LOD-Cloud 
pictorial, please don't hesitate to hola etc..

BTW - I don't equate the LOD-Cloud pictorial as being equivalent to the 
Linked Data Web :-)
