Ah yeah, I made up 'id' before I hit the guide to find its real name,
but forgot. Fixed to be localID now.

Yes, scopeNote is perfect. I was uncomfortable w/ 'definition' but I
grabbed the first thing that seemed OK from the Guide :)

cheers,

ps. if we can find a few people to test drive this, we could try
harvesting into an aggregate triple store. Data should be scruffy enough
to upset both librarians and ontologists... I'd like a UI within
Wordpress to allow someone to map their categories to those of their
friends  and collaborators. Or to more widely used systems. 
We also imho would benefit from conventions for referencing 
SKOS concept schemes from within a FOAF file, eg.  I 
could say w.r..t myself, 

<Person>
 <name>Dan Brickley</name>
 <rdfs:seeAlso>
   <skos:ConceptScheme rdf:about="http://danbri.org/words/skos.php"/>
 </rdfs:SeeAlso>
</Person>

...question then is, whether the URI of a concept scheme is expected to 
have RDF of any kind at it; and if not, how do we make the RDF findable
for those cases where there is an RDF representation published?
