Dear Stu,

Frist thank you for reading the document. Your comment is very useful.
Just one question however: were you just stuck in one specific section 
of the document (for instance the one on 'requirements') or did you 
generally stumble on SKOS features that you would have liked to be 
explained beforehand? And can you point at one or two specific examples 
where you were not satisfied? This might help us a lot to deal with your 


> I've downloaded this document and perused it.  It will not, on its own, be understandable to those not already familiar with the SKOS candidate functionality.
> I understand the desire to not replicate descriptions of these candidate functionalities in this document, but without a direct and obvious summary, the reader is left with the choice of diving into the entire corpus of SKOS documents or just not bothering at all. If this group really wants community feedback, I think there is further work to be done to make these important ideas more accessible to the relevant communities.
