Feature definition for cased based reasoning? Sounds interesting...
And saying that something can be placed into a database does miss the point (I think). Lots of data structures could be placed into a database. The interesting thing is how the structure maps to the data, not how the structure could be represented in a database.
Here are two more links: The first is to a site called InfoDesign which "provides information designers with up-to-date information and communication facilities on aspects of the growing field of Information Design. Its main objective is to collect, structure and disclose relevant resources."
Lot's of useful links here, including some to Douglas Engelbarts work, and one also, a further description of Faceted classification http://www.slais.ubc.ca/courses/libr517/winter2000/Group7/facet.htm

Faceted classification sounds a lot like the sort of feature definition that
gets done when defining cases in case-based reasoning, and even like plain
old fashioned relational databases. (Or did I miss the point?) If so
experience in these fields might give pointers on how to do it well.
