Isn't that a slippery slope towards having namespaces in schema.org? (e.g.
FoafPerson, GrProduct). What's the intention here? Keep
http://schema.org/Concept in case we want to have a generic 'Concept' type
later? What's making this proposal too Skos specific that it cannot fulfill
the generic type of 'Concept'? Why not just tell people to use skos:Concept
then (from the skos namespace)?

I don't see the benefits of introducing a namespace/provenance in the type.
I think it would make it confusing and require people to have knowledge
about the origin vocabulary where the term came from, which goes agasint
the goals of schema.org (might as well just use the original term
namespace). Also, namespacing terms isn't something that has been done
before in schema.org.
