Is there any reason that you did not cite the DRM part of the FEA? The model suggested there has a bit more semantics than a traditional data dictionary (but probably not enough to ensure easy interoperability.)
Taxonomies, thesauri, classification systems, synonym rings are all examples of controlled vocabularies.
Without things like common taxonomies people’s terms and data definitions will be quite diverse. So one needs to describe the basic steps in controlling vocabulary and how these steps map to the terminology.
There are various work that provides some basic guidelines and recommendations for creating controlled vocabularies and leveraging them effectively,but looking at the DRM might be a good start.
