Subject: Re: [dita] Classification domain elements

I use <subjectref> in subjectScheme maps where the same subject occurs in
multiple parts of a taxonomy or ontology hierarchy. Otherwise I have not
used it. 

I can see the utility of having specialized reltable that is specifically
for the task of classification but it's not something I've needed myself or
seen a need for in my clients where a DITA-specific implementation would be

In general, my clients would be most likely to use some sort of RDF-based
system for this sort of link-based classification. They might generate
DITA-specific classification markup from such a system but it is unlikely
they would start there. This is in the context of Publishers who will likely
have a wide variety of things to classify, only some of which will be DITA.
