Thad,
you are right that some Wikipedia lemmata are not sufficiently disambiguated, e.g. you typically have one page for a plant and no separate ones for its fruits, seeds, leaves, or other parts of separate interest.

My proposal, however, does not critically depend on Wikipedia/DBPedia identifiers; you could use any external URI representing the respective entity. So Freebase is of course as good, if not better.

Best

But Schema.org does care about all that... but Freebase does and if your building a website around the Cookery domain, then perhaps you would are also: http://www.freebase.com/view/en/oregano
