Not exactly a specialization of skos:altLabel, but Lexinfo defines
http://www.lexinfo.net/ontology/2.0/lexinfo#approximateSynonym or
http://www.lexinfo.net/ontology/2.0/lexinfo#hyponym to be used to relate
two LexicalSenses in Ontolex.
Why aren't "Elite", "Middle class" and "Working class" defined as
skos:narrowers of "Social class" ?
