I'll make sure there are some extra cross-references.

The discovery aspects are interesting here as ideally you want to look
them up based on a known "identifier property" that stores the Literal

OWL 2 has some support for defining keys and I ought to reference this
from the pattern.

There also needs to be some discussion around using dc:identifier or
sub-properties. The former can be easier to discover "is there any
resource with X as an identifier", while the latter can carry more
semantics. An intermediary position is to use dc:identifier with a
Custom Datatype. SKOS encourages the latter via skos:notation is
always has to have a datatype associated with it.
