I agree it is useful to be able to provide for "custom notes". And also
useful if the Guide spells out any capability for doing so. ( But not so
good if the Guide is so burdened by special cases that you can't see the
main points.)

I was rereading the section on notes and I noted that somewhere along
the line the SKOS Guide dropped information about how to extend the note
types, as well as other types.  I think that it is important that the
information on how to extend note types be placed back into the
document.  Many vocabulary publishers will not be experts in RDF or
understand that they can extend SKOS in a manner to suit their specific
needs, but remain within the bounds of the specification.

Was there a reason why the information was dropped?
