Hi all,

I would like to propose that the following properties be removed from 
SKOS Core, and be moved to an 'extensions' vocabulary (perhaps under the 
namespace <http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core/extensions#>?) ...

skos:broaderGeneric
skos:broaderInstantive
skos:broaderPartitive
skos:narrowerGeneric
skos:narrowerInstantive
skos:narrowerPartitive
skos:relatedHasPart
skos:relatedIsPartOf

My reasons are:

(1) These are the least stable parts of SKOS Core, and I don't expect 
them to stabilise in the short term (i.e. months).  So they're getting 
in the way of publishing short term.
(2) They impinge on the whole 'thesauri -> ontologies' question, which 
again I don't think we're going to have an answer for in the next couple 
of months.
(3) They clutter up SKOS Core, and distract from its fundamental features.

If anyone is using these terms in anger, and/or has any objections to 
this action, speak now!

Yours,

Al.
