Note that the SKOS people (on the SWD Working Group) have been fighting
with the SKOS/OWL-DL relationships for a while. At the last f2f meeting
the group decided to put the DL issues on hold specifically because some
of the issues they were fighting with may become moot in OWL1.1 DL (eg,
via punning). But they can surely give a good feedback on the issues if
we ask them... (and yes, a better integration with SKOS on the
annotation level might be a good way to handle some of these issues for
Vit, too).

Caveat: the SWD WG would like to have a SKOS CR sometimes next April.
Ie, they would probably resist adding dependencies on OWL1.1 into their
