In Freebase, we found it useful to have properties for expressing an
"about" through the use of "Subject of" and "Subjects"...(delegated Subject
properties).

Subjects <https://www.freebase.com/common/topic/subjects?schema=>

   - menu

/common/topic/subjects/common/topic
<https://www.freebase.com/common/topic?schema=>

Subjects of this topic. This property is to be used as the basis of
delegated "subjects" properties on other types.
masterSubject of <https://www.freebase.com/common/topic/subject_of?schema=>

   -

/common/topic/subject_of/common/topic
<https://www.freebase.com/common/topic?schema=>

Different things (films, books, songs, etc.) this topic is the subject of.
I could envision http://schema.org/Thing having those 2 properties as well,
which probably could take care of a number of issues, although not a
"related to" issue.

I would vote "no" to any relatedness properties on Thing itself for now
until further discussion with SKOS is accumulated and lands in Schema.org.
