Like perhaps many on this list, I was hoping someone would jump in  
with "Sure, it's right here!" But I guess not. There was a call not  
long ago for folks to consider creating vocabularies for common ILS  
functions. It seems that this fits into that area and would be very  
useful.

The big dilemma that I see is how we will keep track of the many  
vocabs that are being created so that we don't get people re-inventing  
because they don't know what already exists. There needs to be  
something like a clearinghouse for LLD-related vocabs, or at least a  
hash keyword that we use to make them all retrievable.
