Sorry fot fully finding my way around this:
- is there an agreement on the requirements for mapping
  (or a classification of the requirements in tems of application)
- if yes: where can we find this ?
- if not: can we contribute ? 

(Not realy wanting to continue the epic but to find one or more focus points
:-) )

kr, Johan De Smedt.

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!
