At this point, I'd be tempted to just wait for SHACL [1] to be stabilized, and then see what is best. I suspect that something that allows one to not strictly follow the open-world semantics basing OWL may be a more deisrable breakthrough.
That said, if someone wants to have an attempt at an OWL2 representation of SKOS it wouldn't hurt. I'm actually a bit surprised I couldn't find a trace of an earlier attempt...
