Tom, the definitions of Thema and Nomen are:

Thema: any entity used as a subject of a work
Nomen: any sign or sequence of signs (alphanumeric characters,  
symbols, sound, etc.) by
which a thema is known, referred to or addressed as.

I read this to mean that Thema = concept, but I'm less sure about  
Nomen because it appears that the term Nomen covers both identifier  
and a prefLabel (see section 6.2 where it gives the attributes of  
Nomen as "identifier" and "controlled name").
