Pardon if this was already discussed - 


I don't see an accommodation of USE "AND-TYPE" cross references in the
SKOS core nor in the SKOS Extensions.


An example of AND-type cross reference in thesauri:


cut flower production USE cut flowers

                               AND crop production


This indicates to the indexer and searcher to use both preferred terms,
"cut flower" AND "crop production" for indexing and retrieval of the
concept "cut flower production".


For NISO Z39.19 thesaurus standard, this is section 8.2.5.
"Cross-references to Elements of Compound Terms"


Any previous discussion or suggestions for how these can be handled in
