TITLE:Relationships in Concept Schemes
DESCRIPTION: SKOS defines a 'concept scheme' as: "a set of
concepts, optionally including statements about semantic relationships
between those concepts."

SKOS relationships such as broader and narrower are represented as  
triples
in RDF. The fact that a particular broader/narrower relationship between
two terms belongs to a concept scheme cannot then be represented without
resorting to reification.

A principled approach to representing this containment would be  
desirable.
