Hi Alistair,

The content seems ok to me. The example on KOS extension is slightly 
different from the way we had put it in the Primer  [1], but the usage 
of broader has the same fundamental feature there.
And of course you cannot render all the arguments/counter-arguments, but 
as far as I can remember the links to the thread are appropriate. I have 
just added a link to a comment that I liked by Alasdair Gray on the SKOS 
list.

Maybe there is an editorial problem with the sentence "Another way of 
looking at the usage question is from the point of view of an 
application." It is not part of the previous usage scenario anymore, 
isn't it?
There is also ambiguity with the "first definitions" and "second 
definitions": are they def 1-2 and the one side, and def 3-4 on the 
other side? If yes then I don't understand why 3 would be less flexible 
as you put it.
Also, you write about three main options for these definitions, while 
they are four ;-)

My final comment would be formal: making all of this in a same wiki page 
seems to me a bit long. Maybe a link to a different wiki page would be 
clearer, even if then we take the risk of people not printing/reading 
the linked pages ;-).
I let you and the other decide. But depending on your choice, I'll also 
include the discussion on skos:subject as a technical issue...

Cheers,

Antoine
