Minor correction and complement of information.

The quoted TAE project correct name is "Thesaurus Alignment Environment".
It's currently under development under the OPOCE umbrella, with the
technical collaboration of INRIA and Mondeca.
There is no public visibility of this project at this point of time, no
pointer, sorry ...

>> No, I've never seen this. It looks in fact a bit odd, as the aligned

>> Re. the representation, there must be ways to express this, using OWL

>>> Betreff: "zero relations" in dataset mappings (has no matching entity in)
>>>
>>> When matching and mapping two datasets, it is common that - on both sides
>>> - you find entities which don't have a matching entity on the other side.
>>>
>>> When that non-matching was verified intellectually, it could be valuable
>>> to report this fact - especially to keep track of "false positives"
>>> (e.g. matching labels, but different concepts in SKOS systems).
>>> Basically, this states a relation between an entity - e.g., a
>>> skos:Concept - and a set of entities - as defined e.g. by a
>>> skos:ConceptScheme or a void:Dataset.
>>>
>>> Are you aware of any pattern to express this in RDF?
>>>
>>> I consider coining something like
>>>
>>>   ext:noMatchingEntity rdfs:subPropertyOf skos:note .
>>>
>>> Since the date of the above mentioned verification should be reported,
>>> you could end up along the lines the following example
>>>
>>>   <http://d-nb.info/gnd/4125416-8>  ext:noMatchingEntity
>>>     [ rdf:value<http://zbw.eu/stw>  ;
>>>       dcterms:modified "2010-01-25"^^xsd:date ] .
>>>
>>> What do you think?
