ISSUE-187: Last Call Comment: skos:mappingRelation and skos:semanticRelation


Raised by: Alistair Miles
On product: SKOS

Raised by Bernard Vatant in [1]:

Just realized something I find a bit weird

To begin with skos:mappingRelation and skos:semanticRelation seem to 
have somehow distinct usages, the former being used for cross-vocabulary 
relations, and the latter for relations inside a vocabulary.

But since skos:broadMatch has became a subproperty of  skos:broader, it 
is de facto a subproperty of  skos:semanticRelation.
Same for skos:narrowMatch and skos:relatedMatch.

Some mapping relations are now semantic relations, and I have no problem 
with that ... But why are poor skos:closeMatch ans skos:exactMatch 
excluded from the promotion? Seems to me, there is as much "semantics" 
in a close or exact match than in broad, narrow and related match(es).

Why not make simply skos:mappingRelation a subproperty of 
skos:semanticRelation ?
