Thanks a lot, Osma!
This is really good to have.
And in a way confirms the interest of wait-and-seeing until we can start playing with SHACL / RDF Shapes (arguably closer to SPIN).

To come back to Simon's comment. Yes OWL2 is good, but having an OWL1 representation already allows to use SKOS in OWL2 context (i.e. it specifies which classes and properties are in the SKOS vocabulary). What we're missing then is a handful of contraints from the SKOS model, which OWL2 may anyway not allow one to capture in the way most people would need them (i.e. in a 'closed-world' manner).

Best,

Antoine
