How's this:

<snip>
Most thesauri are managed via a thesaurus management system.  Where the thesaurus management system stores its data in a relational database, or in an XML or structured text file format, or where the standard output of the thesaurus management system is an XML or structured text format, it is usually possible to create an RDF representation of the thesaurus via an automated procedure (e.g. database report, text parsing program, XSLT transformation).

Cheers,

Al.

P.S. I'm becoming aware that the Quick Guide could be an awful lot better, and want to have a good look at it in the next publication iteration, but I think the thing for now is to get this published and then use it as a base for comment and feedback :)
