ISSUE-36: SemanticRelationshipContainment

Raised by: Sean Bechhofer
On product: SKOS

SKOS defines a 'concept scheme' as: "a set of concepts, optionally including
statements about semantic relationships between those concepts."

SKOS relationships such as broader and narrower are represented as triples in
RDF. The fact that a particular broader/narrower relationship between two
concepts belongs to a concept scheme cannot then be represented without
resorting to reification.

A principled approach to representing this containment would be desirable.
