Hi Richard,

To clarify about process: the working group has extended its
charter in order to bring SKOS to Recommendation. If all goes
well, this could happen in June, after which the working group
will close. 

So for the WG itself, there is no process for following
through on these and many other areas where a need to extend
SKOS has been recognized, though we are doing our best to lay
down an orderly record of issues and discussion threads which
other groups could take as a starting point.

How the standardization of extensions to SKOS might be managed
in the community of practice after the WG closes is indeed an
important and timely question.
