Hello Stephane

The question makes sense of course, although the initial focus of VOAF was
on ontology-like vocabularies.
Instances of both owl:Ontology and skos:ConceptScheme could be instances of
Actually we could define
voaf:OWLVocabulary as subclass of both owl:Ontology and voaf:Vocabulary
voaf:SKOSVocabulary as subclass of both skos:ConceptScheme and
then restrict the domain of voaf:classNumber and voaf:propertyNumber to the
former, and add properties such as conceptNumber to the latter.
I put that on the backburner, but it's clearly one the many possible
