Hi Dan,

 Should probably use 'skos:externalID' for now, cos 'skos:localId' is not
yet in the vocab, and also I intended it to be used a bit different anyway
(pointing to a blank node ... see
which I forgot to ref from the last mail).

This sort of thing sounds cool.  Any better properties than rdfs:seeAlso?

Yes I have been wondering about that for a while.  If we could agree on a
convention, that would be a great thing to have the new SKOS guide.  

What if we say: the URI of a concept scheme should resolve to a description
of just the scheme itself.  This description should include statements about
how to obtain the full contents of the scheme.
