Dan, Stéphane,

I am less than the average developer... I don't even know javascript.  But
I do know about general classification, having worked in a library.

After reading about SKOS Concept, I was immediately aware that I would have
2 basic important properties that I cared about and that I could use...
Broader & Narrower.

It does not HAVE to be called SkosConcept... but as long as the definition
shows it's origin and that Broader & Narrower among others, are part of the
bargain, then I think all web developers will easily comprehend what you
mean and what neat interconnections they can bring to expand knowledge and
organize directed Search queries even more.

+1 for EnumConcept and I also saw the tie in to
http://schema.org/Enumeration  ( "Named" does not help signify that basic
"organization" feeling that SKOS is all about...Knowledge Organization....
but Enumeration or Enum does.)
