Google Enters Astronomy ERA

Well I have been using CDC Cartes Du Ciel for the past few years. GoogleSky is interesting in that it superimposes

[1] Wikipedia Articles on Astronomical Entities
[2] Colour Mosaics are superimposed

My only initial concern is lack of detailed database data, which CDC covers ok, ie you can interface into a billion plus stars.
Will look into taking external data just out of interest.
