Data linking has been around for years!

This borrows a term that has been around for years in a wider context.  For example, linking together data from two quite different official business surveys.  That requires the use of a common reference number for the business.  I appreciate that enabling third parties to link sources in the way described is an important aim but I get worried whenever anything gives the impression that something must be done in a particular way, or it doesn't exist/count.  Low tech data linking is fine in some contexts and should not be overlooked.
