Was this an area where the ISO data category registry might come into play? That is, could we declare an agreed upon selection of fairly broad top-level domains to promote interoperability while still allowing for specification by users? 

Unfortunately there is a lot of complexity around this issue in general that we will not resolve and that may indeed be fundamentally unresolvable. But perhaps using the DCR as a place where domain ontologies can be declared in an authoritative resource and pointed to we could at least provide a way for someone to share what they mean.
