Yes, we mint something very similar (see for mine), but none of our 
interoperability partners do. None of our local libraries, none of our 
local archives and only one of our local museums (by virtue of some work 
we did with them).

All of them publish and most consume some form RDF.

Additionally many of the taxonomies we're interested in are available in 
RDF but not topic maps.
