I assume the entries in Section 13 of SKOS Reference [1]
will need to show Definitions, as in the 2005 spec [2] (and,
as in 200, perhaps a clickable index of Classes and Properties
in the upper right corner).

David's observation makes me notice that the current SKOS
Reference [3] lacks a Previous version: link.  As the Latest
Version: link of the older SWBP draft [4] now redirects to
[3], need there not be an unbroken chain of Previous version:
links from [5] to [6]?  (Or is it the link from [4] to [3]
that is in error?)
