Ah, great! I wasn't aware of that site. However, it doesn't quite seem to 
be what I want, it seems like they are more concerned with general 
patterns, not with making suggestions about specific ontologies to use.

For example, SIOC has a Role class, that could be used for AgentRole, 
Location should probably use the geonames:Feature class, etc. 

This Wiki doesn't make it clear to me if it is the purpose to address such
