Hang on... - I just made up the hypothetical "ex:soundLabel"
for the purpose of the example.  Are you saying that there
already exists a "frsad:soundLabel" (along with an frsad:Nomen)
in an already existing frsad: namespace?

Also, I thought frsad:Nomen was analogous to a SKOS label,
not a concept (i.e., the range of frsad:soundLabel, not
the domain).  Do I have it backwards?

To be clear, I was picturing:

    [instance of Thema]          ex:soundLabel       [instance of Nomen]
    [instance of Nomen]          ex:soundForm        (serialization of sound)

analogously to:

    [instance of skos:Concept]   skosxl:prefLabel    [instance of skosxl:Label]
    [instance of skosxl:Label]   skosxl:literalForm  (literal)
