Yes, Dan, if you want to play with something, maybe one of the IVOA astronomy vocabularies can be nice. Especially because there are a couple of "small" vocs  with a clear hierarchical structure there, such as [2].
And then you could have a try with bigger vocabularies. But be careful, things such as subject heading lists (like LCSH at [3]) are more like "networks" of concepts that are not really intended at for global hierarchical browsing, as they maybe have some thousands of "top" nodes...

Cheers,

Antoine
