Dear Hans,

Thanks for reacting on our document. Your mail had slipped away from my 
pile, I feel deeply sorry for this, as this kind of feedback is important.

This point was also mentioned in our working group, hence our having 
introduced compatibility with ISO-11179 Part 3: Registry metamodel and 
basic attributes [2]
Our general approach was to gather in the use cases part some 
applications of SKOS, and not general languages we should be compatible 
with. The latter kind of requirement is indeed supposed to be derived 
from concrete application scenario. We would therefore need an 
application of SKOS that would also be interested in ISO-11179...

So can you live with us keeping the status of ISO-11179-Part3 
compatibility on our agenda as a (candidate) requirement as in [2]?

If not:
- would you want it to be given a higher status, by linking it to a use 
- do you think we should check for other part of ISO-11179 as well?

Best regards,
