Personally, I'm strongly in favor of this SKOS-lite proposal and would like
to see it in schema.org. This would be useful in particular for the Drupal
8 schema.org integration. In Drupal 7 we've been using skos:Concept
and skos:prefLabel to annotate the taxonomy terms type and name in RDFa
(see example [1]). There is currently no real equivalent in schema.org. At
the moment we're using the weaker schema:Thing in Drupal 8, but having a
schema:Concept would be more appropriate IMO. In Drupal, taxonomy terms
(aka tags) are often use to tag articles or pieces of content in general.
We're currently using schema:about to link articles to their tags in the
default article content type that comes pre-installed, so having a
schema:Concept would be a good companion to schema:about, and more precise
than schema:Thing.
