Also I wasn't talking about identifying concepts in relation to *someone
elses* indicators, although this would be a possibility [with the
implication that (?x skos:indicator ?i) (?y skos:indicator ?i) -> (?x
skos-map:exactMatch ?y)].

So I just realised that, if allowed to be used in this way, of course a
'skos:indicator' type property *should not* be an IFP.

An alternative name has been suggested to me, something involving the word
'indicative' ... e.g. 'indicativeRepresentation' 'indicativeResource' ...
just throwing ideas out, hoping to work towards a name that reflects well
the intended usage.
