In an attempt to address your comment, I added this to the "Goals" section:

"""
Ensuring that the machine-readable language that expresses verifiable
claims (aka vocabularies) are 1) reusable, so that a single vocabulary
may suit the needs of a broad set of stakeholders, and 2) extensible, so
that particular industry verticals may build extensions on top of
existing vocabularies to suit their needs.

I tried softening/rewording a bit, but would need more specific changes
if you're not okay with the changes:
