Web of Objects and Linked Data applications often assume that connectivity to data repositories and entity resolution services are always available. This may not be a valid assumption in many cases. Indeed, there are about 4.5 billion people in the world who have no or limited Web access. Many data-driven applications may have a critical impact on the life of those people, but are inaccessible to those populations due to the architecture of today's data registries. In this paper, we point out the limitations of current entity registries when deployed in poorly connected or ad-hoc environments. We then sketch new architectures based on IPV6, structured P2P networks and data replication for entity registries that could run in ad-hoc environments with limited Internet connectivity.
