Hi Johan!

Thanks for letting me know. I don't (yet) need the final OWL version. 
We're just planning how to express all the features in our vocabularies, 
particulary the Finnish Upper Ontology YSO and its extensions including 
KOKO, as SKOS/RDF. The iso-thes work is an excellent contribution that 
will make it easier for us to express vocabulary features that go a bit 
beyond what plain SKOS offers.

At this point I just wanted to know a bit more about the upcoming 
iso-thes namespace, so that we can make forward-compatible decisions in 
the vocabularies themselves and the tools we use to develop and publish 
them, including Skosify and ONKI Light.

I had no idea you were just about to finish the definition of the 
iso-thes extension as OWL. I'm sure you will sort out all the details 
and publish the result when it's ready. Take your time and thanks again!

-Osma
