I am looking to define a controlled vocabulary that contains a list of description elements.  Values will be associated with the individual description elements, where some of values should be constrained by other controlled vocabularies. For example, my description set contains (length, weight, color) and color is to be constrained to (red, yellow, blue).


 I was looking to represent this in SKOS.  My thoughts were:

-          The descriptive elements would each be SKOS Concepts

-          The set of description elements forming the controlled vocabulary would be a SKOS Concept Scheme

-          The controlled values would a SKOS Collection.


What I am missing is how to say a given description element in one controlled vocabulary, e.g. a SKOS Concept Scheme, can be constrained to a list of values, e.g. a SKOS Collection.  I was considering rdfs:range but I’m not sure that is applicable.


I was surprised that the SKOS examples I found on the Web don’t mention this.  Am I missing something fundamental?
