On the dead link of skos-thes, see
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/2017Oct/0003.html. Let
me revive this issue on the mailing-list.
Don't be confused with the date you see at the top of the "latest draft"
link, which is dynamically generated with date at which you request the
document. The XKOS specs have not changed for 2 years (see the repository
content : https://github.com/linked-statistics/xkos).

I'm sticking with skos-thes.
XKOS originates from and is well adapted for _statistical classifications_,
and is not (quite) a general purpose extension of SKOS.
There was a comment on XKOS on exactly this question of reusong or mapping
to skos-thes for subproperties of broader/narrower :
https://github.com/linked-statistics/xkos/issues/32.
