There are some examples of specialising (extending) the SKOS data
model in the SKOS Reference. For example, section 8.6.3. illustrates
the refinement of the skos:related property. For example, section
A.4.4.1. illustrates the refinement of the skosxl:labelRelation
property. However, a detailed treatment of extending the SKOS data
model was deemed out of scope for the SKOS Reference, and better
treated in the SKOS Primer. We propose to make no change to the SKOS
Reference, can you live with this?

Kind regards,
