We have not encountered any requirements to specify the range of
skos:member. We propose to make no change to the current draft,
leaving the range unspecified, allowing greater flexibility in the use
of the SKOS collections framework, for example with third party
extensions. Can you live with this?

Similarly we have not encountered a requirement for an inverse of
skos:member. We propose to make no change, can you live with this?

Kind regards,
