I'm looking for some guidance on choice of mechanisms for interlinking concept schemes.

 In the Primer, following the discussion of mapping (Section 3.1)  there is discussion (Section 3.2) of re-using concepts by asserting 

	ex1:A-Concept-In-Scheme-1   skos:inScheme  ex2:Scheme-2

Section 3.2 also discusses owl:imports as a third strategy for interlinking.

Are there any writings available that elaborate a bit more than the Primer on the advantages and disadvantages of each strategy (mapping vs. re-use vs. importing) and "best practices" for when to prefer one strategy over the others?

Thanks!

John
