Hello Alistair

Thanks for the finding. Looks indeed very close to what we need, indeed, and
we have URIs for the status values.
Looking a closer there is a bit of namespace hijacking / wishful thinking -
not to mention the weird xml:lang attribute on the skos:Concept element
itself :(

    <skos:Concept rdf:about="http://metadataregistry.org/uri/RegStatus/1003"
xml:lang="en">
        <skos:inScheme rdf:resource="
http://metadataregistry.org/uri/RegStatus"/>
        <*skos:status* rdf:resource="
http://metadataregistry.org/uri/RegStatus/1001"/>
        <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="en">Change-Proposed</skos:prefLabel>
    </skos:Concept>

*skos:status* ??? I don't think it has ever been there even in the spec
drafts, or maybe remotely in the corner of some discussions. Alistair,
remember such a thing?

... but if someday soon we have, courtesy of DCMI diligence, a
dcterms:status property it would fit neatly in the slot.

Bernard
