I’m in general agreement with John, I think there’s an AA level SC to be had here, perhaps with a wider scoped SC at AAA.

Particularly this bit:

If the pre-defined parts of coga-personalisation are cherry-picked, that’s good source material at AA.

We need to start with the most widely applicable (across sites) and most important (to users) pre-defined terms, and (very importantly) get some sort of user-agent software going that makes use of it (e.g. a browser extension).

I think a wider-scope SC at AAA using open-taxonomy could be useful with a service such as this demo uses:

However, as a starting point (and at AA) I think the concrete terms are most obvious and most likely to get traction. In W3C a context (essentially the web-ecosystem), starting with small concrete steps is always more effective than moon-shots.
