Mappings are difficult. They are not just difficult to construct, but it 
is also hard to envisage the ways in which they will be used, and derive 
from that vision the most helpful model for representing them. ( Not so 
hard to do a one-off for a particular need, but how to satisfy 
everybody??) I don't know, but I guess the SKOS team is hard pressed 
with other priorities, and needs a lot more time to come up with a 
robust design. I can't imagine that they would drop the ambition to get 
there in the end.
All the best!
