Dear SKOS Editors,

The definition S19 states that:
    "S19  skos:broader is a sub-property of skos:broaderTransitive and
skos:narrower is a sub-property of skos:narrowerTransitive".

I think the correct form should be:
    "S19  skos:broaderTransitive is a sub-property of skos:broader and
skos:narrowerTransitive is a sub-property of skos:narrower".

because "to be broader transitive" is a specific case of "to be broader" (or
narrower). The generic property should subsumes the specific one.

     If my comment is correct, it is necessary to adjust the "full set of
sub-property relationships" diagram (above "Example 53") to follow this new
