Scientometric aspects of government OA mandates

The Scholarly Kitchen has an interesting article on how to define "federal 
funding" under the emerging US OA mandate. See 

The scientometric issue is how valid the impact analysis of government 
agencies can be when "government funding" is poorly defined, such that 
research with very little actual government funding is included? 
Conversely, what role might the scientometric community play in resolving 
this issue? I have raised this issue in the Kitchen article comments, if 
anyone wants to join the discussion.
