Dear Doug

Thank you for your comments [1,ISSUE-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.

-------------------------------------------------------------

We agree with your observation and have inserted the following 
paragraph into Section 1.3.

[[
In addition, some KOS are, by design, not intended to represent a 
logical view of their domain. Converting such KOS to a formal logic-
based representation may, in practice, involve changes which result 
in a representation that no longer meets the intended purpose.
]]

The Working Group propose to close this issue. Please let us know if 
you are happy with this.

Cheers,

        Sean Bechhofer
