Thomas,

Good to hear from you!

Have you looked at the ontology-lexicon group [1] for overlap?

I still think, given your subject matter, that you could start a 
separate group. How quickly do you want to start (we can start ASAP)?

If you wish to start, you need to give me:

1) A Name: ("Vocabulary Best Practices")
2) A shortname: (such as "vocabs")
3) A short (1-3 paragraph) description

    cheers,
        harry
