This is an approach that I and a number of other people are working on. 
We're trying to make it easy to say "everything on this website has 
description A" (with the ability to also say "except things that match 
/$regEx/ in their URL that have description B"). The use cases are centred 
on trustmarks, quality labels and descriptions for child protection purposes 
but the system can equally handle Dublin Core, Creative Commons and all the 
rest.Chapter and verse in a nearly-ready Incubator Activity proposal,
