Dear all

We're considering adding schema.org markup at lov.okfn.org, and in
particular in vocabulary description pages, such as
http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/details/vocabulary_schema.html.

We can now put each vocabulary in the broad CreativeWork type, but what
about a more specific "Vocabulary" type, which could be used by any kind of
reference vocabulary : glossaries, classifications, ontologies, concept
schemes, subject headings, authorities ...

An extra would be to have a "definedBy" property to link instances of the
oncoming Topic class to an instance of Vocabulary.

How does that sound?
