I'd certainly be interested to see an 'at a glance' view of who else
is defining RDF terms that reference the SKOS core. I'm sure there are
a half-dozen "tagging" proposals that subclass skos:Concept for
example. And in FOAF we have foaf:focus with an rdfs:range of
skos:Concept. Perhaps sindice.com could be used to track down more of
these?

Re general tooling for a common ns, I'm not sure. RDFa and a text
editor + svn? Could even use something very plain like wordpress and
edit via Web...?

cheers,

Dan
