 Hi team,

A long time ago we had a discussion about how we represent controlled terms
The solution we ended up using uses SKOS, but it requires us to use custom
rules in order to process the SKOS information.

There is an interesting W3C document under production by the SWBPWG that
discusses a number of design alternatives here - see

In the end, we ended up Approach 1 - the document has an interesting
discussion of the pros and cons of this and other approaches.
