So I gather you mean: Use 
<http://viaf.org/viaf/102333412/#skos:Concept> when you're referring to the skos:Concept of Jane Austen
when you're referring to the foaf:Person Jane Austen


	Even though I identified these separately in VIAF early on, the
	need/purpose of doing so was unclear to me until Martin showed me the
	foaf:focus property last weekend. What it means is that SELIBR, DNB, and
	other VIAF contributors can disagree on the identity of the skos:Concept
	(including preferred and alternate labels) while still agreeing (via
	VIAF algorithms and owl:sameAs) on the identity of "the thing". 
	(I wish I had gotten my bachelor's degree in the engineering college

	use when we mean "axiom"?)

		I don't understand why you are using #skos:Concept for Persons/Agents.

		Is it because they are marked that they can also be used in subject

		headings in the MARC name authorities file? Or some other reason?
