This is wonderful! Hope we can see a demonstration soon :-)
Could you make it in a way that 
- users can log in, and once logged in, add / modify data (with authorship 
always preserved & visible)
- user can rate information (peer review) by *digitally signing* already 
existing information thus confirming that they have read it and believe that 
this information is correct
(similar to a WIKI, only more structured)
- version controlled changes a la CVS

That way, we could have an international drug reference database in no time, 
since no matter which country I ask, people are desperate for such generic 
*free* information! There are far more people willing to type in such 
information than people able to write software.
