Hi Mark,

Well, I'd just like to add an item to the proposals list that says something along the lines of: we think quality assurance is important, and furthermore we can't capture all of the intended semantics of SKOS Core using RDF+OWL, so we think this should be adressed at some point, possibly with a test framework similar to that published at [1].

I.e. we're flagging up the issue, we're not sure exactly what to do about it, let's get some feedback.

I think it's a bit early to suggest that e.g. [1] become an appendix to the SKOS Core Guide, as the schemarama idea needs more air, plus SPARQL isn't solid yet either.

Cheers,

Al.
