My previous posting [1] described how we want to use FOAF,
DC, SKOS, and PRISM as "featured vocabularies" -- vocabularies
illustrating enough of the good-practice features to warrant a
bullet point of description in Section 1.  

The current outline also provides space in Section 1 for some
"featured documents" -- technical notes and recommendations
that articulate the major aspects of good practice reflected in
the note.  In the current draft, these placeholders are:

>    -- World Wide Web Architecture and Semantic Web principles
>       TASK: Ralph - Bullet point on W3C good-practice documents
>             TBL has written about Web architecture, and TAG
>             has come out with Architecture of the World
>             Wide Web, First Edition [SW-ARCHITECTURE and
>             W3C-TAGARCHITECTURE].  A bullet point should put
>             these various formal and informal position papers
>             into the proper perspective for outsiders to W3C.
>
>    -- OASIS Published Subjects
>       TASK: Bernard - Bullet point on OASIS Published Subjects
>             The bullet point should provide some context on Topic 
>             Maps and Semantic Web and on the PSI Recommendation
>             [OASIS-PUBSUBJ].

Ralph has already agreed to provide some text and references
about the major W3C documents.  Between working-group outputs
(e.g., TAG) and various less formal notes on the same topics
by TBL (e.g., Architecture at 50,000 Feet), alot of documents
on the W3C Web site touch on vocabulary management, but it
is difficult as an outsider to put these various papers into
perspective.  The VM note should help the reader focus in on
those documents that most accurately reflect current thinking.

I was thinking that this would be a good place to introduce
the OASIS Public Subjects technical document, along with a
few words on how closely the approach outlined therein follows
that of W3C and reference to any efforts underway to promote
convergence between these two communities.  The rest of the
VM note, then, could draw attention to those points on which
PSI recommendations are consistent with Semantic Web practice.

In yesterday's telecon [2], however, it was asked whether
-- in addition to the technical document -- there are any
PS-compliant _vocabularies_ that might be used as good-practice
examples in the note.  Can anyone point to any?
