Thanks to all the responses to my previous posts both on and off list.

The responses we have received include solutions/work arounds for many of
the use cases we require (but interestingly not all). The slight
'difficulty' is that many of the responses offered different solutions to
the same problems. Our reason for additionally exposing our data as SKOS is
not to implement a SKOS model (we have our own) but to enhance data
interoperability by offering another format. To this end (for us) this
flexibility (or lack of clarity depending upon viewpoint :))is actually a
barrier to our implementation. 

Because of this we have decided (at the moment) to implement SKOS as an
additional mechanism for exposing the latest revision/version of a
vocabulary (which we believe will be useful to all SKOS 'consumers'), but
not as a mechanism for exposing change and lifecycle management or version

I am sure we will have more questions as we progress and if anyone has any
SKOS data which they donít mind sharing (> 5,000 concepts especially welcome
:)) it would be great to get some more test data.

Many thanks again for all your help so far.
