Just thought about it.
Maybe, hmmm there is a similar semantics for that

SKOS Core Guide
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-swbp-skos-core-guide-20051102/
W3C Working Draft 2 November 2005  (one year without being  
republished, not good)

[[[
Preferred and Alternative Lexical Labels

The skos:prefLabel and skos:altLabel properties allow you to assign  
preferred and alternative lexical labels to a resource. For example:

The given example is

<rdf:RDF
   xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
   xmlns:skos="http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core#">

   <skos:Concept rdf:about="http://www.example.com/concepts#animals">
     <skos:prefLabel>animals</skos:prefLabel>
     <skos:altLabel>creatures</skos:altLabel>
     <skos:altLabel>fauna</skos:altLabel>
   </skos:Concept>

</rdf:RDF>

A similar mechanism for names, Book titles and movies, would be  
interesting.
