There has long been a gap for this.

I implemented this kind of thing for one series of Topologi's editors, see
in particular to have simple annotatable declarations of elements in a
vocabulary in a flat format. It has a myriad of uses.

I don't think reason is a proper response to (my) sarcasm and metonymy:
you are affirming my point. There is a waffly long-term mission statement,
dis-coordinated WG scopes, rulings on individual broad issues from TAG,
and nothing binding them together, except perhaps the desire for the
semantic web (or linked data as it is called now.)
