You might want to contact the JISC IUGO project folks at Bristol (Nikki Rogers 
(bcc'ed), et al), some of the same people also did the CREW project in 
collaboration with Manchester - I'm sure they must have worked through many of 
these issues.

Also, I'd be happy to assemble a list of candidates you find effective via the 
ADMIRAL project or JISC Developer Focus - it sounds like the sort of thing we 
should be assembling guidance for, especially within "our" UK HE/FE community.

I'm just looking for guidance on what sorts of vocabularies we should use in our new (Drupal-based) web site. It has been very confusing to me that there is no such clear guidance; there seems to be a sort of inspired adhoc approach, which works perhaps if you know what you're doing, but not otherwise.
