Hi Leif, Andrew Maffei here. 

I'm in the "might consume results" box you mention, but from the academic club. 

I (try to) coordinate, from an informatics perspective, a number of data-intensive science projects here at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Folks that work with me are working to make data locked inside "the long tail of science" (apologies for the buzzword), as linked open data that can be accessed by scientists via webservices, etc. We have ideas and code we are developing to try and make data set identifiers from a variety of different science projects to be more "interoperable" so that we can better deal with inter-disciplinary science problems (of which the ocean has several).
