I can give an example in French:
 
politique (FR)  = politics (EN)   
      and
politique (FR)  = policies (EN)
 
But I also know that we have maybe to change one of the two French terms...
 
And
 
Colourants (ES)  = Colourants (EN)    ---- BT Chemical substances
      and
Colourants (ES)  = Dyes (EN)    ---- BT  Colourants 
 
(but maybe in the second case the spanish should be Tintes?)
 
Regards
Margherita

	Can you give example of a classification scheme that breaks this
	rule? It doesn't make much sense for the preferred label of a concept
	NOT to unambiguously represent the concept within ONE KOS.
