Keep the initial list short. Our goal isn't to anticipate all future
participants, rather to provide a mechanism that will permit new (or
quite mature) vocabularies to be added when needed.
Is there a practical limit to the number of vocabularies we will be
able to support? There may ultimately be dozens or hundreds (or more)
