Hello everyone,

I am developing an application to manage concept schemes, based on SKOS. My
question is about the hasTopConcept property. In my opinion this property
should be generated dynamically (by inference) during the query of the
concept scheme (only for viewing and browsing purposes). As indicated in
SKOS-Reference:

"The property skos: hasTopConcept is, by convention, used to link a concept
to the SKOS concept scheme (s) which are topmost in the hierarchical
relations for that scheme."

That is, a Top concept would be a concept of a hierarchy that did not have
any one broader concept. Therefore, It is not necessary to explicitly define
a concept such as Top concept. Thus, the tasks of managing the scheme
concept could be simplified.

This interpretation would be correct?

Regards
