Hi Antoine

While you're at it, here is a couple of things I spotted while working on a
translation of the recommendation :

   - Exemple 77 uses "love"@fr while it should be "amour"@fr;
   - Section C5 states : "This RDF schema document expresses the SKOS
   vocabulary" while I think it should read "This RDF schema document
   expresses the SKOS*-XL* vocabulary";
   - S48 and S58 are categorized in "Class and Property Definitions", but
   they are expressing "disjointWith" relationships. Shouldn't they belong to
   an "integrity condition" section like the other "disjointWith" statements
   in the recommendation ?

Cheers

Thomas
