I was thinking about this, but was trying to keep this doc [1] as concise as
possible.  Also as the SKOS Core Guide part 1 takes each of the features in
turn, I thought it would be OK not to do that in [1].  I reckon the
correspondance is pretty obvious, but then I work with RDF every day.  Would
like to hear what others (esp non-RDF folks) think about this.
