I understand that umbel:linksEntity is designed exactly for this case.  
But I'd feel uneasy about recommending the use of this property.

Where is it used already? Any evidence of uptake in the RDF community?  
Are the UMBEL folks engaging with the community to get greater buy-in?  
Are the UMBEL folks in touch with the SKOS community to work towards  
getting this into a future version of SKOS? Are there any people whom  
I trust who endorse the use of UMBEL? What else do I “buy into” when I  
use UMBEL?

I'm not an early adopter type when it comes to this kind of  
vocabulary, so I want to see some evidence of uptake...
