Re Appendix A.2. The skosxl:Label Class

The new “label framework” goes in the right direction, but does not  
go far enough.

The skos:hiddenLabel property is considered to be useful for  
accessibility-related use cases (where misspellings may occur).

The new properties skos:prefLabel and skos:altLabel  conflict with  
dc:title.  In fact, these properties co-exist in examples of the SKOS  
reference.  Guidance is missing as to when to use the skos-defined  
label properties, and when to use dc:title.

The label framework should explicitly cater for non-textual labels in  
image, audio or video format, and as provided in other markup  
languages such as MathML.  Labels in other modalities may serve as  
alternate labels in accessibility-related use cases.  SKOS should  
provide guidance as to how to provide images, audio and video content  
as alternate labels.  Currently, icons are being standardized as  
representing concepts in an upcoming multi-part standard ISO/IEC  
11581, developed by ISO/IEC JTC1 SC35.  SKOS should be able to  
specify these icons as part of a knowledge organization system.

Also, the most common label relationships should be pre-defined by  
SKOS.  This should include: skos:acronym, skos:pronunciation.
