Apologies for cross posting ;)

Here is the Counter Ontology [1], which includes a general multiple 
purpose counter concept. This concept could be uses to associate any 
owl:Thing typed concept to (a) co:Counter instance(s) with the property 
co:counter or a specific sub property of it [2,3]. The second property 
of co:Counter is co:count, which is a simple xsd:int based datatype 
property. That means you could use this concept for things like for 
example play counter, skip counter or website hit counter.
Furthermore, this ontology includes already a predefined property to 
associate event specific (event:Event[4]) counter to its related events 
(co:event_counter). This enables the opportunity to trace back all 
related events, which are responsible for a specific count. Of course, 
this is also possible with all other owl:Thing typed concepts ;)

So please let me know, if this concept is strong enough as general 
multiple purpose counter concept. Feel free to add comments, suggestions 
and critics.
