This is controversial and we need more discussion before making a  
decision. I take it that you recommend not to do it...

We will remove the subclassing from skos:Concept and instead recommend  
the use of dc:subject to relate a dataset to a concept.

We will support the management of collections of dimensions as  
skos:ConceptSchemes, because that's a natural way of mapping what's  
done in SDMX to RDF. So this should address your requirement.
