Seems fine. Just as a word of warning -- the DL schema was produced  
using an XSLT transform on skos.rdf that makes some assumptions about  
the form of the document (basically the comments like <!-- Sn --> are  
used to identify the axioms to strip out. Horrible, I know, but it  
works....:-) So any significant edits on the skos.rdf schema might  
break that. The proposed changes to the header comments should be ok  
though.

Cheers,
