URI namespace for iso-thes?

we're in a situation where we'd like to use two kinds of 
skos:Collections within the same SKOS dataset: thesaurus array type 
Collections for "milk by source animal" cases, and a classification of 
concepts by domain/theme (e.g. medical, legal, philosophy...) which is 
separate from the concept hierarchy.

It seems to me that the distinction between ThesaurusArray and 
ConceptGroup made in the ISO 25964-1 to SKOS correspondence document [1] 
would fit these cases quite well. We could use separate subclasses of 
skos:Concept to express these different kinds of collections.

However, [1] doesn't seem define an actual namespace URI for the 
iso-thes classes and properties, only the prefix iso-thes. I couldn't 
find one in other documents and correspondence either. I understand this 
is a work in progress, but does a namespace URI exist for iso-thes that 
could be used, knowing that it might yet change and things within the 
namespace might still evolve?
