Why are you turning a the term "DataWiki" into something so narrow?
A DataWiki is simply the application of Wiki concepts to Data re.
Create, Update, and Delete operation.
There are quite a number of DataWiki that have been in existence in the
Linked Data realm long before Wikidata. It just so happens that Wikidata
is potentially another fine example of the DataWiki concept at Web scale.
This would permit BigData, specialized data, and graph
sources to feed
Wikidata along their own data philosophy and collection/update policy.
It doesn't need to permit anything re. BigData. Eventually, folks will
understand that BigData agility is inextricably linked to the concept of
I suppose that the main point would be an
protocol (RFC?) matching the datawiki authoritative operators' (the
first of them being Wikidata) requirements.
No, you already have HTTP, REST patterns, SPARQL Protocol for Updates,
Inserts, and Deletions, SPARQL Graph Update Protocol etc..
I would permit projects at different stages of R&D
or with different
main purposes in order to cooperate with Wikidata.
The Web isn't about permissions, it is really about the ability to "just
do it!" .
