This issue was resolved at the recent F2F meeting in Washington. The  
relevant log of the discussion is here:

http://www.w3.org/2008/05/06-swd-minutes.html#item04

The final resolution was:

RESOLUTION: 1. keep the mapping vocabulary broadMatch, narrowMatch,  
2. broadMatch, narrowMatch, etc. are rdfs:subPropertyOf broader,  
narrower, 3. there are no semantic conditions on broadMatch,  
narrowMatch; i.e. graphs 1-6 are all consistent, 4. there is some  
text about cultural conventions explaining where we expect broadMatch  
to be used, 5. by convention, mapping properties are only used to  
link concepts in different schemes, 6. in the Last Call WD we'll note  
that the mapping vocabulary may be dropped

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

	Sean
