Re: Representation of Compound Mapping in SKOS

In support of Christine's suggestion I'd point out that the issue has 
been aired at several events in the past year, e.g. the Cologne 
Conference  on Interoperability and Semantics in Knowledge Organization 
  (http://linux2.fbi.fh-koeln.de/cisko2010/presentations.html) and the 
NKOS workshop in Glasgow 
(http://www.comp.glam.ac.uk/pages/research/hypermedia/nkos/nkos2010/programme.html), 
where I gave a presentation on the Types of mapping recommended in ISO 
25964.

There seems no doubt that for applications in which good quality 
mappings are needed from one thesaurus to another, there is a demand for 
compound equivalence mappings. ISO 25964 includes recommendations for 
the development and use of such mappings. And in another reply to this 
posting, Johan de Smedt presents some ideas for a schema to use.

At both the above conferences it was pointed out that an extension to 
SKOS would be required. Is there any hope that W3C may soon be able to 
support/encourage work on such an extension?
