Hi Renato, 

The W3C in particular did not want to take on vertical vocabulary projects
in the past. Tim B-L emphasized in multiple talks that the W3C would like
to focus on developing ontology languages, and let industry develop
vertical solutions. (To me the examples you mentioned such as SKOS and
PROV are part of the language infrastructure.)

schema.org is such a vertical solution based on the needs of large web
consumers.

Best,
Peter
