Want to find more updated stuff about Published Subjects?
Stay tuned with OASIS Topic Maps Published Subjects Technical Committee

You will see that we are struggling now to refine definitions and set recommendations.
See particularly (still in the working, new release TBD those days)

Just a remark. A "subject indicator", or "subject definition resource" - depending if you
consider the viewpoint of the publisher or the one of the user, e.g. topic map author -
can identify *any* kind of subject, be it real-world individual object, concept, notion
... whatever can be "reified" by a <topic> element in a topic map.

Hope that helps.
