I thought it worth mentioning a project I am involved with, SCHEMAS, which
is looking at this issue... how implementors of metadata schemas might
find out about existing schemas, and keep track of what vocabularies are
in use, are under development.

The project is not restricted to vocabularies expressed in RDF, and
has a bias towards supporting projects funded under the European
Commission latest programme.  We will be setting up a 'metadata registry'
to assist in sharing information, see

And for a look at a prototype 'metadata registry' see
