Hi Peter (ccing the SKOS list, as this is a SKOS implementation, after all :-)

I also think that's really a cool effort, with a great potential!

My question would be about your choices wrt. the use of relatedMatch and closeMatch: why do we have
http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ses/v6n7p skos:relatedMatch urn:lsid:ubio.org:namebank:105509 
and 
http://rdf.taxonconcept.org/ses/v6n7p skos:closeMatch http://purl.uniprot.org/taxonomy/9696
?
All three seem to be about the same beast, namely the one at [1]. I'd be very much interested in hearing about your decision criterion!

Cheers,

Antoine
