[SKOS] Amsterdam topic: "Labeling properties"

Hi all,

Looking at the module on labelling [1], I agree not to force a 
constraint on the semantic to resolve ISSUE-31 but to define syntactic 

The second condition says: "Where an RDF graph contains more than one 
triple where the subject is the same, the predicate is skos:prefLabel, 
and the object is a plain literal with the same language tag, an 
application SHOULD ignore all but one of these triples." However, I 
believe that these subsequent skos:prefLabel should be considered as 
skos:altLabel within the application rather than ignore them altogether. 
Otherwise, the semantic should say that only one skos:prefLabel is 
allowed to avoid losing information.
