Hi Christophe,
Just a small clarification in case it is not clear. The ISO 25964-1 data 
model *does* provide for ordering of the sibling concepts in 
"ThesaurusArray". The ability to sort siblings into a systematic order 
is not seen as part of the hierarchical relationship per se, since even 
a flat list, or the top level of a vocabulary, might need to be ordered.

  But the nature of the sorting mechanism to use is left open.
