The problem is that there is no such thing as a central repository of
XML vocabularies.

One of the main news archive are the Cover pages
(http://www.oasis-open.org/cover/) but I did a quick check and they do
not seem to care that much about oceans!

If your post on xml-dev doesn't bring useful answers, I think that you
should rather search among other specialists of your own sector
(oceans): it seems to be very specific and it isn't very likely that
generalist XML experts have been exposed to such applications.

Sorry I am not able to help more than that.
