Hi Alvaro,

I had a look and it seems to look roughly right. It is a lot like SKOS, as  
far as I can tell. One thing that would make it easier, and is in my  
opinion very good practice in general, is to put rdfs label and comment  
notes on your terms, with an xml:lang, so that it is clearer what they are  
meant to mean. Guessing from parts of a URI is a bad way to try and do  
that.

It might be interesting to do a more detailed comparison with SKOS too,  
and if there are terms that are more or less exact matches use them  
instead of reinventing them and making us all build OWL processors to use  
more than one person's data...

cheers

Chaals
