Couldn't you just leave my comment there, not further specified? ;-)

Well, most organizations and systems certainly have some kind of 
unformal/human-readable documentation of their policy.

Encoding them in RDF is certainly possible, but my point is (I suppose) 
that this is a very different problem, and would require detailed study 
  and research into different kinds of policies/versioning 
systems/standardization organizations in order to be useful. Worthwhile, 
and very relevant for most users of SKOS, but out of scope for SKOS 
proper, probably (hopefully).

Or at least that's my take on it.
