Giovonni's dbin [1] is exactly this kind of project, where data is 
described by users.

Of course, in a purely "data defined by users" way, there is also 
the OpenGuides. However, these are a web-based wiki, rather than
a local P2P application.
"OpenGuides is a network of free, community-maintained "wiki" 
city guides to which anyone can contribute." [2]
