Ah, but perhaps there can be "free love":

That was a presentation on Open Source and what I called "Open Data".
How relevant you find it probably depends on what you want from these
kinds of things.

I'm not all that excited about the schema end of these things.  For
various reasons, I'm pretty content to get my hands on the raw markup,
and critique it at that level rather than the schema level.
