Hi,

I am designing a software that uses SKOS data and unsure about how to limit notations. Are multiple notations per concepts actually used? The advise to use custom datatypes is rather unhelpful because RDF has no default mechanism to express information about datatypes. If most concept schemes have only one notation per Concept, I'd rather make this a constraint instead of implementing edge cases that nobody makes use of anyway. See also my question at http://answers.semanticweb.com/questions/26492/are-skos-concepts-with-multiple-notations-actually-used
