Given these two situations:

 

<skos:prefLabel>Dog</skos:prefLabel>

<skos:prefLabel xml:lang=>Dog</skos:prefLabel>

 

Does the inclusion of *both* prefLabel in a SKOS concept result in breaking the rule S14 that no two prefLabel should have the same lexical value for the same language tag?

I believe that the rdf xml syntax specification states that if a language tag is not given, then the default value is "", which seems to yield the intuitively correct model (via identity of indiscernables).
