I think you are suggesting:

     ...not to another full-fledged RDF resource identified
     with a URI or a blank node.

But my point was that the opposite of a range of RDF plain literals
is a range of "RDF resource", whether that resource is identified with
a URI or not.  I think it should say something like:

     They have as their ranges [RDF-CONCEPTS] RDF plain
     literals, which means that they link a skos:Concept to a
     character string (and not to other types of RDF resource).

In effect, it is the "non-literal value" thing again...
