Hello Jeff and Evain

Thanks for your answers, and Jeff proposals.
Would you be ready to formalize together a proposal to be able to describe
concept / controlled vocabulary / glossary within Schema.org ?
I see it both as a semantic web related project, based on SKOS work, and an
SEO project as for SEO reasons, domain focus web sites often publish
glossary / dictonnary describing domain subject / concept for readers but
even more to get a better indexation by search engines.

This is also related to description of pages like wikipedia webpages where
you both find an identification of a concept and an article about the
concept.

Cheers
Jean
