Hi Nicholas,
I am doing a similar thing for DBpedia Spotlight [1], and was thinking
about using skos:related

"The property skos:related is used to assert an associative link between
two SKOS concepts."
"skos:related is not defined as a transitive property."

The only problem might be:
Domain: skos:Concept
Range: skos:Concept

http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-reference/

Cheers,
Pablo
