Dr. Sowa,

I agree, that is what the document says..   There seems to be preference to the usage of  "Collections" rather than altLabels. 

But there is some references to usage " list of values ", if call them so,  in that document  there...  as lables and Collections.  

All of that looks primitive, is you compare to traditional programming languages .. ( like Java..) .. but then this is SemWeb technology.  

I will leave up to the SKOS work group experts to figure out the rest..

Bigus Dealus Gloriosus.

Is that supposed to be *simple* ?

Perhaps it is for somebody who has been tortured by RDF and OWL.
