Dear all,

After a long period of silence, I have attached a new proposal [1] for a 
mapping vocabulary for SKOS to the page dedicated to ISSUE-39 [2]

A bit of history. Some months ago, I proposed a first solution, trying 
to re-use the standard SKOS semantic relations (broader, narrower, 
related) to map concepts from different schemes [3]. This first 
proposal, submitted to the SKOS community list, was rejected (see 
discussion [4]).

The new proposal hence follows an opposite approach. It is indeed more 
conservative, trying to consolidate the existing SKOS mapping vocabulary 
[5]. It therefore does not mix with the standard SKOS intra-scheme 
relations vocabulary.
It also still delegates a lot of problems to other issues (like concept 
coordination [6]). But I hope it will be easier to make a decision that way.

Comments are highly welcome! (I would like hereby to thank the SKOS 
community for all the relevant points that were made last time)
