Dear Bob,

I'm working as a consultant for FAO on porting AGROVOC and other FAO
vocabularies to SKOS-XL (the new version will be added very soon to the
linked-data cloud).
There are already URIs for AGROVOC (from a past version available in OWL)
though, for referring to semantically-matching concepts from other thesauri
available in FAO which won't be probably ported to RDF, instead of
generating URIs for them too and then linking 'em through skos mapping
properties, we will use subproperties of skos:notation to report their codes
with respect to each of the old thesauri. This way, we will keep in the new
RDF version of AGROVOC links to all legacy DBs of other thesauri

As an example:

:an_agrovoc_uri :asfaCode            "asf4523"^^:ASFACode
:asfaCode       rdfs:subPropertyOf   skos:notation

Following SKOS best-practices, we will probably define many subproperties of
skos:notation (and non-xsd datatypes) as the number of available thesauri to
be referenced

Cheers,

Armando
