Hi all,

Following Jeremy's suggestion number (7) at [1], I'd like to raise a 
proposal to modify all examples given in the SKOS Core Guide after the 
section 'labelling properties', such that a language tag is added to all 
literals with natural language text, where currently absent. This is to 
encourage the use of language tags even for concept schemes labelled and 
documented in a single language, because the presence of language tags 
provides useful information where the concept scheme is being discovered 
and used in an international context, as is inevitable once published on 
the web.

Any objections to raising this proposal?

Cheers,

Al.
