Hi Ron, all,
 
I agree, 'searchLabel' isn't perfect ... in fact the other possible name I
had in mind for this property was 'hiddenLabel' :)  Can't think of anything
more elegant at this time.

Al, 

These can indeed be very useful, for grammatical variations that not handled
in other ways, as well as for misspellings. The name of the property might
be a bit confusing however, as of course other kinds of labels are also used
in searching. As you say, the key defining factor is that these alternative
labels would not be displayed under normal circumstances. So perhaps call it
noDisplayLabel or hiddenLabel (or something more elegant along those lines)?

This is just a thought, but what about a property called e.g. 'searchLabel'
that allows you to add labels to a concept to aid user search, where you
*don't* want those labels to appear among the meaning-defining set of labels
for that concept.  This could be used e.g. for common mis-spellings of
another label.
