It has always amazed me how library people are allergic to any terminological generalization of "pre-coordination" (it's about assembling different concepts together, no? So a kind of combination...). Anyway, what was bothering me is that the previously written "concept coordination" was looking too vague while denoting a quite precise thing ("concept" here is much more precise than many other occurrences of the same word in the rest of the text). Having an all-precise wording such as "pre-coordinated subject heading" is also very fine by me!

Thanks for the feedback, Karen!

> I don't know what was intended by "concept coordination" but my gut tells me it wasn't "combining concepts." From what I know, the problem with SKOS and library data is that it can't handle pre-coordinated subject headings.
