I'm currently looking for exactly these types of properties, but in the
context of a vocabulary editor (i.e. for Classes and Properties). I've
seen that the domain of skos:example is limited to skos:Concept but I
couldn't find a hint whether skos:Concept is a subClass of rdfs:Class (or
the other way round?). So I fear, I can't use skos:example to describe,
let's say, an owl:Class (, which would be really nice..)? The skos spec
at http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core.rdf uses it for class annotations,
but I'm not sure if that's (formally) correct..

who can help me?
