Hi Alistair

This is a good framework for questions I was about to post, which fit at 
least in part in  [ISSUE-44]
What are the relation of broader/narrower semantics with conceptScheme 
semantics, if any?
    * Should broader/narrower link concepts of the same concept scheme, 
or are they allowed across concept schemes?
    * If a concept belongs to several concept schemes, would it be 
possible / does it make sense to distinguish broader-narrower 
hierarchies in different schemes?
Related question, I would like to see specified the semantics of 
ConceptScheme, and the difference between ConceptScheme and subclass of 
Concept. Maybe another issue number for this?
