I don't have the web skills, but this seems like a great opportunity
to aggregate delicious export data, and release it as a social tagging
dataset. All that is necessary is a web interface that takes a user's
delicious username + password, and gets the bulk data, for a later
I can help promote the site so that it reaches a bunch of users,
assuming you will freely share the exported data.
- so if anyone has a triplestore handy...

We (http://okfn.org/) probably do and it would be great to get this
data out (I've personally been a long-time user too).
Also shows why using an open service  matters!
I've been nosing around the del.icio.us API etc and there doesn't seem
any way of getting bulk data out without very painful scraping, so
unless anyone has a friendly contact at del.icio.us/Yahoo! Joseph's
suggestion of a service which you give your user name & password seems
the best bet.
