Yes indeed.
Do you know a bit more of what they did? Or at least what were the  

I wish that tagging systems had (on the backend side) ways to deal with
	- associating meaning on user choices (your own private taxonomy)
	- associating meaning with a bigger classification (attach a tag to  
an already existing taxonomy, ex: geo stuff)
	- associating two tags giving them equivalences on user choices

SKOS with label being the tags

It's all about giving users the choice to use well defined taxonomy  
AND to build his/her own if needed.
