The Citeability Standard is a scheme to construct HTTP URI's for documents with links to levels inside the document.  This is a restricted type of linked data - a sort of pre-DCAT architecture for SKOS Concepts.

If the Citation Repository (catalog with meta data) serves up RDF records of the format here:


then these RDF/XML records can be validated with a reduced (not all RDF formats) XSD schema (given in ./xsd/*) (see: ./trace.txt).  The validation can be used as a filter to insure that the dcterms:subject collection stays in the family, so to speak, meaning that all the subjects are in the dcat:themeTaxonomy of the linked data.  While the SKOS model allows the Open World Assumption, that is not, primarily, what Governments with informational purpose do.

The file above is a template prototype in RDF with Dublin Core based on laws, decrees et., but can be used for any similar domain, KOS, taxonomy, etc..
