Re: [ontolex] core module, couple of doubts

Hi Jorge,

The first issue has already been discussed: glosses will be something that
can be defined on the lexical sense and a module will define the exact
property for this.

As for the imports, I think you may be right that we shouldn't import SKOS
and Semiotics.owl as we are not actually building on top of these
ontologies but merely stating equivalences, just linking by URIs should
