Not when one is documenting a software package that includes a thesurus
search function using this style of data. :-) Or having to prepare such
thesaurus lists for use by customers of the product.

Nothing that's accessible on the web. IEE's INSPEC thesaurus is perhaps
the most complete but one has to pay to get hold of it. Previously I've
dealt with the NIH's MESH thesaurus, which might be available as part of
their Grateful Med (sic or should htat be sick) gateway, but agin isn't
software/hardware related. But the inaccessiblity of it ought not to
preclude such structures being in DocBook. Some of the defintion lists in
8879 and other standards could be beter expressed as thesaurus lists.
