If a concept is reused across different concept schemes my proposal would be
to have different namespace (and so different URI) for it and then define
them with the different labels as needed, and then use mappings.
       uri c_in_a = http://myschemeA#c123  and has preferred label a
       uri c_in_b = http://myschemeA#c123 <http://myschemeA#c123>   and has
preferred label b
http://myschemeA#c123 <http://myschemea/#c123>  exactMatch
http://myschemeA#c123 <http://myschemea/#c123>  
Hope this helps.

	Hi Rob,
	In our projects we have recognized the need to have different labels
	depending on the product/audience where a concept is used.
	To solve that, we using mapping relationships.
	Each product further uses only one specific Concept scheme but can
	exploit mapped concepts
	- when clear for the audience (to navigate/use a different thesaurus
	- find indexed/classified documents (classification by the other
	scheme terms)
	Currently we have found the skos mappings to be responding to
	requirements though than what we need (at least as I understand it
and I
	appologize up front if I am wrong).  So we use a proprietary mapping
	construct (it was introduced on this mailing lists in other comments
	We also tried some label-relationship approach but this became too
	complicated in maintenance, conformance to the standard, clarity and
	I am looking forward to your or other reactions and approaches about
	this issue.
	kr, Johan De Smedt.

	Dear list members
	As a follow up to my previous post (but in a slightly different area)
	If a concept is reused across different concept schemes.
	How should we expose that scheme 'a' has a preferred label for the
	concept of 'a', but scheme 'b' has a preferred label for concept 'a'
	which is actually 'b'?
