Hi Alistar and Antoine,

I have seen that there is a proposal for "RelationshipsBetweenLabels" in
SKOS... I think this is very good matter because make more closer SKOS to the
model we are working on at FAO.

In fact, if you allow more RelationshipsBetweenLabels, and specify WHAT kind
of relationships it is, we can in fact represent all our current needs, which
are expressed in our current relationships, which can be more or less divided
into:

- Relationships between different terms:

synonym (simmetric)
translation (simmetric)
has_chemical_formula <--> is_chemical_formula_of 
has_scientific_taxonomic_name <--> is_scientific_taxonomic_name_of 
[[related term (simmetric) : if none of previous apply]] optional

- Relationships between different strings related to the same term:

has_abbreviation <--> is_abbreviation_of
has_acronym <--> is_acronym_of
spelling_variant (simmetric)
has_plural_form <--> has_singular_form
has_capitalized_form <--> is_capitalized_form_of
(I have others but my list is still ongoing and I have to organize them
better) 

In any case this seems promising. 

I also still need to study SKOS in OWL-DL as I know its available so that I
can check if can be better used to represent agrovoc and the agrovoc-concept
server.

Hope this helps
Margherita
