As a vocabulary maintainer, I'd be very happy to have a custom feed of 
information relating to use of terms from any namespace I maintain. Plus 
general stats of course. We talked about this briefly and I'd like to 
make a proposal for the stats aspects (will blog something). Re pings, 
the point here would be to identify novel vocabulary patterns early on 
in their deployment lifecycle, so that in the case that they were 
innovative/creative, we'd know about it; and if they were simply in 
error, a conversation about alternative idioms could begin before the 
publisher was too committed to the quirky pattern...

Handwaving a bit on the detail,

Dan
