Not sure if that's possible.  It's rather the RDF data model that would 
have to be extended here.

Or, if we chose to extend SKOS, such a SKOS extension be working around 
the respective limitation of the RDF data model.

Extending RDF has been suggested before:

J. J. Carroll and A. Phillips. “Multilingual RDF and OWL”. In: The 
Semantic Web. ESWC. LNCS 3532. Springer, 2005.  (An earlier version of 
it is freely available at 

I myself don't dare suggesting this to the developers of RDF.  In any 
case I would first like to gather feedback from the SKOS community.
