Not that strange. 

 

MADS uses Authority because that's what it is, an Authority. It's narrower than a Concept. It is used to refer to things are "authoritative":  authoritative form for a personal name, authoritative form for a  place, etc.

In the MADS ontology, they used the term “Authority” in place of “Concept”.

Strange but true.
