The "RDF metadata" icons that are listed there were (originally)
created specifically for this purpose of indicating (to a human) there
is machine readable RDF metadata available. Tools like piggy-bank that
actually *do* things with this data however are the driving forces
which makes this work :) My preference however would be to re-use the
RDF metadata icons, as if we do this right this data will be useful to
more than just piggy-bank!

If the group decides however, it would like to extend these icons, let
me know and I'll have these linked / or included on the RDF icons page.
