As I might open a pandora box regarding tags for Media, has there been any discussion about having a “global” taxonomy tool, so that Media assets, nodes and whatever are using the same taxonomy and be used for look up and presentation.
I will suggest the following idea, based upon the taxonomy concept from Drupal .
In this concept, you have a Vocabulary which consists of a number of Terms. A term can have a Subterm
Each Site can have one or more Vocabulary assigned to it, and it's possible to add tag to piece of content from the available selection.
3 years ago I started a very early prototype that could manage parts of it - but never got around finishing it. Currently I'm writing a project proposal, that could sponsor part of this work
To get this as close to "right" in the first place, I would like to hear and collect ideas from others who might have had this on there mind or know stuff from talking to editors or whatever could benefit it.
