What does Linked Data do to address the "what is it I'm getting at the other end of this pipe?" issue?
Linking all this stuff together isn't new. How long has ODBC been around? At least 20 years?
What does Linked Data add to the challenge of "I wonder what's in this column/field/cell?"

(2) you do not have access to the person who does know
(3) the person who does know is likely only partially correct.
