Forgot to mention that the initial formulation of a controlled
vocabulary may well be already done for you.

If you consider that the emacs/elisp info manuals are *already*
formatted in a structured manner not unlike the Z39.19 you might
recognize that many of the `keywords' and relationships you need are
already in the .texi source.

I suggest you start with the the .texi source and extract the relevant
terms as a proposed hierarchy for your controlled vocabulary. This can
then be extended by with `freely assignable 'sub-tags' attached to the
core controlled headwords.

BT: Yanking::Replacing Yanks  <= post :: is the authors `freely
assigned' sub-tag
NT: Earlier Kills::Regexp on Kill Ring <= post :: is the authors
`freely assigned' sub-tag
RT: Mark Ring::Conditional Yanks <= post :: is the authors `freely
assigned' sub-tag

Such a structure might afford integration/reflection with make-info at
build time and present a more consistent interface at a higher level.
