looking at the property chain definitions (S 55-57) in
I cannot find them in the formal RDF of skosxl.

Primer says:
"If an instance of xl:Label is attached to a concept by, say, a
skos-xl:altLabel statement, it follows from the SKOS-XL semantics that
the literal form of the xl:Label instance is related to this concept by
a standard skos:altLabel statement. In the above example, ex:FAO
therefore has "FAO"@en" as alternative (literal) label."

How can any RDF tool behave like that and display skosxl:literalForm
"FAO" in this example just like it would display the direct literal of a

Are these semantics informal?
Did I miss something?

Kind regards,
