This looks good, except "discrete versioning management
policy" does not seem clear or specific enough.   Do you mean
something like (to replace the text starting "Furthermore"):

    In a departure from the policy implied by the version
    number "1.0", the SKOS Core vocabulary is no longer
    versioned as a whole. The current versioning policy is
    described below.
