Yep, thanks for those, will fix.

Okay, so broader to oa:editing, but closeMatch to each other, yes?

Sorry, I must have been asleep when either reading or writing, not sure
which :)

However, on this one, I just want to clarify that new motivations that are
not broader to any of the existing instances would thus not have any
broader relationship, and the oa:motivationScheme [note caps:)] would not
have a topConcept.


xx:identifying a oa:Motivation ;
  skos:inScheme xx:myMotivationScheme ;
  skos:prefLabel "Identifying"@en .

And the subclassing of oa:Motivation is sufficient.
