Not to be confused, I suppose, with http://vocab.org/. :-) Actually, 
there are vocabularies in http://open.vocab.org (which had a similar 
form-based interface) that need some curating to make them more useful. 
This gives us a great example of the issues of vocabulary maintenance 
which will be one of the big topics at the upcoming DCMI meeting in 
Lisbon in September[1]. We may have reached the point where some 
community agreement on vocabulary curation is essential.

It allows people, with very little technical
