* Currently http://data.gov.au/ publishes read-only data; allow community collaborators (members of the public, contractors to public works, etc) to directly update or contribute to http://data.gov.au/ data sets; possible use cases:
 +
** Extend the API to allow data to be updated
 +
** Directly update data via web form
 +
** Indirectly update data by synchronising previously-exported data; for example: http://data.gov.au/ data might have been submitted to http://www.openstreetmap.org/; when that data is updated on http://www.openstreetmap.org/, those changes could be synchronised back into http://data.gov.au/
