I pitched in with a small comment. I've seen the thread and thought 
"must thread that" - and now I have. DCAT etc. is not really what 
Peter's after - it's values for dcterms:subject I think. The concepts 
around vocab profiles is something I'm looking at in the context of 
possible work items for a successor WG. So what I'm looking for now is 
possible community interest, background info etc.
