Dear Eric,

Thank for your comment. It indeed has a short answer (a concept can have 
two braoder concepts, cf [1])
but the SKOS Primer should maybe anticipate that sort of doubts!

I would propose to add in section 2.3.1
A SKOS concept can be attached to several broader concepts at a same time.

Would that suit you?
