We don't really have this yet. There may be a case to reflect
something like a "SKOS lite" into schema.org's namespace. Or, since
this isn't a particularly mass-market activity (there aren't so many
people publishing these) maybe SKOS-in-RDFa or SKOS-in-Microdata would
look simple enough. Good question! I'll ask around...
