Although I'm not quite there yet, I have a SKOS based rewrite of ISO 3166 Country Codes that will fit nicely into this Glossary.  Currently it is in the form of an XML Character Entity Set associated with two "Position Functions" (URL's which the TopConcept= top of a sovereignty tree, and Concept, the bottom) Intermediate entities do not need re-definition, just evaluation.  It is a little more complicated than that, but the complications are exceptional, not structural.

In the tradition of EULA's everywhere, I am insisting that people read the fine print before I show them the tables, links to which are at the end.  The entity set will harmonize (a Trade and Tariff term of art) with ISO 3166, UN/LOCODE (Port Code Tables), IANA Root Zones and Sponsor Property, FIPS-4, STANAG 1059, etc. in terms which Tariff Authorities will understand.  It is the sort of thing Governments find very handy.

At the risk of repeating myself, please, please, please read the fine print.

I use an InfoPath form to maintain the StratML glossary in conformance with
that schema and stylesheet:

However, any XML-enabled E-form or authoring/editing application could be
used to create instance documents applying that schema.

+1 to Ed Summers' comment in a separate message with respect to the
potential of a "lightweight web-centric approach."
