I think many of us are looking for ways to do what you describe
from what I understand from your questions below

depends on the domain, and the requirement. my suggestion would be define
some sort of requirement for this vocabulary (scope, who would have to use
it, for what) this will provide you with enough rationale to make a plan.
you will of course tend to reuse as many existing words in use as possible,
although there may be instances where the word in use will be many, and you
will have to make decisions etc, I recommend you attend a vocamp !

ther are a log of options, I would say once you have a vocabulary, or a
community of people working on defining one, get onto knoodl.com, or similar
other tool, semantic wiki also ,which will atomatically output an rdf
when the vocabulary is reasonably agreed and finalized, it can be published
in a place like schemaweb, I think
