Speaking as the Convenor of a Group intent on publishing a quite
different standard, I have huge sympathy with the strategy of going with
what you have got, rather than waiting to add all the bells and whistles
that may one day be useful. So I'd say "Go", especially if you've made
it clear that extensions may come later.
All the best
Stella

Subject: 'Extending' SKOS Core



Hi all,

The intention is currently that 'extending' SKOS Core will be addressed
in a separate document.  We took it out originally because we were
trying to tighten the scope of the Guide so we could get it into a
publishable form asap.

Are we happy with guidance on extensions going in another doc, or should
it go into the Guide?

Cheers,

Al.
