[PORT] SKOS Core spec and guide (was RE: A problem RE: Dereferencing SKOS Core)

Hi all,

I have a proposal re the SKOS Core spec and the guide to sort out the problem of W3C publication.  I propose that we add an appendix to the guide (called 'Term Summary Tables' or something), which is the term summary tables as they currently appear in the spec.  Then we change hypertext links in the prose in the guide that currently link to the spec, and instead link them to the appendix.  The guide would then only ever refer to itself, and we wouldn't need to publish the spec as a W3C working draft at all.  This would also then allow us to publish the guide without requiring that the 'policy statements' go through review just yet (these are still the only @@TODO for the spec, and need to be thought about more).

How does that sound?
