I can see two orthogonal concepts here:

The one is more concerned about the form ('article' vs. 'book' vs. 'slides')
while the other is about domain-specific vocabularies ('business letter'
vs. 'design pattern').

I'm only talking about the domain-specific vocabularies when suggesting
a modular / extensible approach. It's an interesting question, though, how
this other dimension (for which I still lack a term) relates to this.
How could a user possibly choose vocabularies ("I'd like to write a book
about our in-house software development process" vs. "I'd like to make a
slideshow about this and that analysis model" etc.)
