"To solve ISSUE-79 (11.4. Notations) I propose to encode notations with
the RFC 4646 private use language subtag 'x-notation' as suggested in

FYI to the SKOS editors in making a decision on this issue.
In making the ICONCLASS SKOS version having a Notation is an important part,
and I followed the suggestion as mentioned.

This means ICONCLASS SKOS entries currently look like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://iconclass.org/sw/31B4">
    <skos:narrower rdf:resource="http://iconclass.org/sw/31B4%28%2B0%29"/>
    <skos:broader rdf:resource="http://iconclass.org/sw/31B"/>
    <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core#Concept"/>
    <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="en">hypnosis and suggestion</skos:prefLabel>
    <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="de">Hypnose und Suggestion</skos:prefLabel>
    <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="it">ipnosi e suggestione</skos:prefLabel>

    <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="fr">hypnose et suggestion</skos:prefLabel>
    <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="fi">hypnoosi</skos:prefLabel>
    <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="x-notation">31B4</skos:prefLabel>

Don't bother trying to resolve those HTTP URIs, they give 404s at the moment.
I haven't made a final decision on the namespace yet.
