Despite the fact that when I crack the whip people usually get moving, :-)
I was actually commenting as much on the fact that we don't yet *have* a
stable set of URLs to use as subject identifiers.

The only problems I had with the file was the bogus 'xlink:href' attribute
on <topicMap>, and the lack of topics for the "#xtm-psi-*" references. I
added those and the thing popped up just fine in Ceryle. Here's a screen

   The Office of Special Plans (OSP) was set up by the defence secretary,
   Donald Rumsfeld, to second-guess CIA information and operated under
   the patronage of hardline conservatives in the top rungs of the admini-
   stration, the Pentagon and at the White House, including Vice-President
   Dick Cheney. The ideologically driven network functioned like a shadow
   government, much of it off the official payroll and beyond congressional
   oversight. [...It] also forged close ties to a parallel, ad hoc intelli-
   gence operation inside Ariel Sharon's office in Israel specifically to
   bypass Mossad and provide the Bush administration with more alarmist
   reports on Saddam's Iraq than Mossad was prepared to authorise.
