Opened on:
Previous drafts of the SKOS specification included the properties skos:subject,
skos:isSubjectOf, skos:primarySubject and skos:isPrimarySubjectOf as "subject
indexing properties". Should these properties be carried forward to the SKOS
Reference? Or should they be dropped?

2008-05-07: RESOLUTION: to not include the SKOS indexing properties because 1) it's the role of SKOS to publish vocabularies and not to indicate how they should be used for indexing purposes 2) there appear to be enough support from existing metadata vocabularies to handle links between resources and SKOS concepts --
