Maybe what you are looking for are the various RDF vocabularies out
there.  Given the task of creating some new markup you could combine
the various existing vocabularies - people, places, employment
details, addresses, cvs (resumes) etc.

Each RDF vocabulary could be one of your reusable building blocks.

Hopefully someone with RDF knowledge will chime in, because I have none.
