I think the use of skos:preflabel and skos:altlabel may be restrictive 
and confusing.

For example, in biological sciences, we have scientific name, local name 
and common name for plants, fish and other living things.  Which should 
be the preferred name?  It depends on the context.  Likewise we can have 
labels in different languages. 

I would like to suggest the use of  skos:label with a type attribute 
where the type can be "preferred", "alternate" and any other appropriate 
name. 

Regards,
KK Aw
