I don't completely understand this mechanism yet, but do you think it
could be stretched to address the SKOS/codes issue in
http://w3c.github.io/csvw/use-cases-and-requirements/#UC-ExpressingHierarchyWithinOccupationalListings
where we'd want to explode strings like "15-1199.00", "15-1199.01" and
emit triples like 'broader' when certain patterns matched?
