Call me crazy, but I presume the folks who designed SKOS already had a
discussion like this, isn't it therefore a bit strange to have the same
discussion all over again. Looking at all the existing documentation (which
refers to 'Concept') there is, wouldn't it make the general developer's
life a lot easier if the naming stays the same?

That way there are a lot of resources one can use, instead of yet another
property which more or less does the same. In my opinion that would only
add to the confusion.
