> 10.  Tasks and topics in DocBook

I often use the Teresa tool for creating task models in XML and think it works particularly well. 

i.e. http://giove.isti.cnr.it/teresa/teresa_xml.html

Perhaps, rather than considering implementing a full topic based system we could just add some bookmark tags that allow you to to reference a unique location in any topic or tag based ontology? e.g. Freefox's Annotea Ubimarks add-on does something like this:

<bm:Bookmark RDF:about="http://gary.cornelius.bz/bookmark/Wed_17_Jan_2007_21_33_40_GMT";
               dc:title="fabio-tampere-two-final.pdf (application/pdf Object)"
               dc:date="Wed, 17 Jan 2007 21:31:14 GMT"
               a:created="Wed, 17 Jan 2007 21:31:14 GMT"
               dc:description="Powerpoint slide for Linking User Task and User Interfaces: a Model-based Approach by Fabio Paterṇ"
               dc:creator="Gary Cornelius">
    <bm:recalls RDF:resource="http://www.cs.tut.fi/tapahtumat/summer05/fabio-tampere-two-final.pdf"/>
    <foaf:maker RDF:resource="http://gary.cornelius.bz"/>
    <bm:hasTopic RDF:resource="http://gary.cornelius.bz/topic/task-management"/>
    <bm:hasTopic RDF:resource="http://gary.cornelius.bz/topic/ui-abstraction"/>
    <RDFS:seeAlso RDF:resource="http://giove.isti.cnr.it/teresa/teresa_xml.html"/>
