A quick remark from the former chair of OASIS PubSubj Committee, who has to bite that bait
:)

Though I would of course welcome the introduction of subject indicator in skos vocabulary,
I've never made up my mind about the relevancy of using owl:InverseFunctionalProperty to
capture it. Since owl:InverseFunctionalProperty is a subclass of owl:ObjectProperty,
having

skos:subjectIndicator 	rdf:type	owl:InverseFunctionalProperty

would imply considering the object of skos:subjectIndicator as an Individual

I'm not sure it's such a good idea. What do you imagine would be the range of
skos:SubjectIndicator in that case? Would you leave it open? Or what?

Cheers

Bernard
