The final version of that doc might have a bit more polish [1].

I'm kind of a fan of using RDFa to publish vocabularies, since it is
incredibly lightweight (you can just publish a static HTML document).
For example, we felt like we needed to create a few pieces of
vocabulary for the National Digital Newspaper Program, so we simply
published an HTML document as part of the web application [2].

If you need something to manage the namespace I'd take a look at
Neologism [3]. The openvocab [4] solution is also requires very little
on your part.
