My discussions with research communities (Linguistics, bioinformatics...)
seem to propose that certain research databases (e.g. genetic data) are 
intended only for researchers, not for students. I have an impression that
cross-national access to research data [1] may even become the killer app 
for confederations.

Of course, this opens a can of worms of semantics of a researcher...
