That's acceptable, yes.

But I thought of another possibility, which I think I prefer:
just define properties like


and describe Tobacco ala:


i.e. "that which has prism:sic of 0132".

Maybe relate prism:sic
to http://www.osha.gov/cgi-bin/sic/sicser2
using rdfs:seeAlso.

If you're interested in using daml, you can
specify that prism:sic is a daml:UnambiguousProperty.
