SKOS "narrower" bug

My apologies if this is not the right place for bug reports.

This is in reference to the file from
http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-reference/skos.rdf that the SKOS RDF Vocabularies
page, http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/vocabs, says is the current RDF
vocabulary for SKOS in RDF.

Inside that file, I believe that the concept skos:narrower mistakenly has
the same scopeNote as skos:broader.  I imagine the correct version should
say:

"By convention, skos:narrower is only used to assert an immediate (i.e.
direct) hierarchical link between two conceptual resources."

The current version says:

"By convention, skos:broader is only used to assert an immediate (i.e.
direct) hierarchical link between two conceptual resources."

Here is the rdf:Description from skos.rdf:

  <rdf:Description rdf:about="#narrower">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">has narrower</rdfs:label>
    <rdfs:isDefinedBy rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core"/>
    <skos:definition xml:lang="en">Relates a concept to a concept that is
more specific in meaning.</skos:definition>
    <skos:scopeNote xml:lang="en">By convention, skos:broader is only used
to assert an immediate (i.e. direct) hierarchical link between two
conceptual resources.</skos:scopeNote>
    <rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">Narrower concepts are typically rendered as
children in a concept hierarchy (tree).</rdfs:comment>
    <!-- S18 -->
    <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#ObjectProperty"/>
    <!-- S22 -->
    <rdfs:subPropertyOf rdf:resource="#narrowerTransitive"/>
    <!-- S25 -->
    <owl:inverseOf rdf:resource="#broader"/>
    <!-- For non-OWL aware applications -->
    <rdf:type rdf:resource="

  </rdf:Description>

Best regards,
