I interpret this as asking "if an application chooses to implement
matching of en-UK and en-GB to en* by adding some inference of
its own that leads to inconsistencies with other parts of the SKOS
spec, should we add a simple warning?"  to which I answer with
another question; "where would we stop with such simple warnings?" ;)

I'm not saying this matching is wrong, just the implementation
that lead the graph to contain multiple values of prefLabel for
a single language tag.
