For those who're not on public-glossary. This is an app that uses (some 
earlier version of?) SKOS with some local extensions for hypertext 
fragments. I've not done a comparision of the current spec, but think 
that aspect is worth noting...

cheers,

Err... Doesn't the logo at the top of the page work? Anyway, I've added
a link "W3C Glossaries" under the <h1> of the results pages.

Yes; the RDF files are available at:
http://www.w3.org/2003/03/glossary-project/data/glossaries/

Using rdf:parseType="Literal".

Nope, I hadn't; I'm not sure I'll have time to reply to that survey in
any reasonable time, but feel free to notice the relevant persons that
the W3C Glossary is relying on SKOS (or at least some version of it - I
haven't followed the possible recent evolutions of the vocabulary).

Yes, I think it does.

I don't think that beyond the hypertext fragment thingy we noticed any
real problem with SKOS...

HTH,
