For point 2. I would suggest:
 
-  leave 'concept a' as deprecated. Its uri will remain but some status
should be set as deprecated. No URI can be eliminated.
- assign a new uri to concept 'b' and keep 'a' as non preferred label for it.
 
Hope this helps,
Regards
Margherita

	Dear list members
	
	The background to my questions is that we are currently considering
	developing a
	'SKOS resolver' (for want of a better description) for our
	terminology management solution to sit alongside the other formats we
	currently implement.
	
	This has however thrown up some questions.
	
	As part of this requirement we (ideally)need to:
	1 Expose versioning information
	2 Allow identification of terminology changes between versions
	
	As these are parts of our existing solution which are already exposed
using
	other formats.
	
	So...
	
	1. How should we expose versioning information given that uri's for
	  concepts are fixed (please don’t say timestamps on
	  uri's :))
	
	2. How should we identify and manage change between revisions of
concept
	schemes as this 'seems' to result in imprecision.
	   e.g. a concept 'a' is currently in thes 'A' and only has a
preferred
	label. A new revision of thes 'A' is published and what was concept
'a'
	   is now a non preferred concept and thus becomes simply a non
preferred
	label
	   for a new concept 'b'.
	
	   It seems to me that this operation loses some
	   of the semantic meaning of the change as all references to the
	   concept id of 'concept a' would be lost as it now is only a non
preferred
	
	   label of a different concept with a different id (concept 'b').
	
	Any comments would be much appreciated.
	
	Best Regards
	
	Rob
