Ummm, in the Feb 8
http://openannotation.org/spec/core/appendices.html#ExtendingMotivations
the example  avows

 oa:motivationScheme a skos:ConceptScheme ;

and then puts some skos data on it, presumably in order to support the
skos breadth comparisons to oa:editing.

Rather than expect such triples

oa:motivationScheme a skos:ConceptScheme ;

oa:editing a oa:Motivation ;
    skos:inScheme oa:motivationScheme ;
    skos:prefLabel "Editing"@en.

to be in extension code,  I would think such triples are actually
meant to be part of the spec in the case of every Section 2.3 declared
Motivation.

In this case, I think I would also expect that for the most part, it
would be discouraged for extensions to change much of the skos in
these Section 2.3 Motivations except, perhaps  the skos:prefLabel.

In other words, I imagine that Appendix is not really inviting the
world to put whatever skos semantics it wishes on the Section 2.3
instances.

Am I confused?

Bob
