I think it's a generalization of exactMatch and closeMatch.
specializationOf is, to my eye, a superproperty of skos:broaderTransitive.
Concepts are a little different, since they can be much fuzzier than things
in the world. Is a narrower concept in any sense the same "thing" as it's
broader counterpart? I predicted something like this (but not quite) in a
2010 OWLed paper, that we would need something like SKOS for non-conceptual
things:
