I agree that one solution would be to declare multiple BT. I did 
consider this. I have in the end gone for keeping the concepts separate 
and providing unique prefLabels based on the context. I have provided 
altLabels so that search can still take advantage of the short label. 
The main reason for my choice is that we are encoding the vocabulary 
that someone else devised and they saw fit to distinguish between these 
two concepts.

Cheers,

Alasdair
