<Original_request>
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).    (01)

 I was looking to represent this in SKOS.  My thoughts were:    (02)

-          The descriptive elements would each be SKOS Concepts    (03)

-          The set of description elements forming the controlled vocabulary 
would be a SKOS Concept Scheme    (04)

-          The controlled values would a SKOS Collection.    (05)

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 Iím not sure that is 
applicable.    (06)

I was surprised that the SKOS examples I found on the Web donít mention this.  
Am I missing something fundamental?

SKOS is a small subset of OWL stated in a different notation.    (011)

OWL is a small subset of first-order logic stated in a different notation.    (012)

First-order logic is a small subset of English stated in a different
notation.    (013)

If you can't state clearly in English exactly what you want to do,
none of those other notations will help you.    (014)
