Quick thoughts: I see the motivation re. reuse, but rather than trying
to use solely RSS 1.0 for the items, it might be better to use more
precise terms where they exist, as_well_as the RSS terms, e.g.

<http://example.org/doc> a rss:item; a foaf:Document .

For the taxo stuff, SKOS sounds a very good idea generally, though I
wouldn't be surprised if there were existing vocabs that could be used
for things like "tutorial" etc.
I'll cc Ian, he hangs around libraries...

It might also be worth considering (perhaps redundantly again) the Tag
Ontology at
