ISSUE-161: Argument on KOS purposes in SKOS Reference

http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/track/issues/161

In section 1.3, as well as the cost/benefit argument for SKOS (in KOS versus a
formal ontology), I think it is also possible to make an argument based on
intended purpose. Some KOS (by design) do not represent a 'logical' view of
their domain and are only converted to a formal logic representation in
practical terms by changing their intended purpose.
