Yes, that seems more comprehensible.

One question is whether there is any semantics here.

If there is no semantics then it'd be worth mentioning that e.g.

"An Individual or Class that this Concept corresponds to. There is no 
formal semantics carried by this relationship but it indicates that the 
SKOS Concept and the corresponding Class/Instance both refer to the same 
'thing' that in a way that outside of the formal model."

If there is some semantics it would be worth spelling those out (but I'm 
assuming not).
