John is right to be sceptical-
This is not what upward posting is supposed to be used for; in fact upward posting is itself considered to be extremely poor form in Knowledge Organization Systems. Even the SKOS primer notes this.
The Alternative Labels for a SKOS Concept fulfill the role of USE/USE FOR relationships in traditional knowledge organization systems like thesauri. They are used to indicate different natural language strings that refer to the same set of ``documents''.
This approach was used in the past if a document collection only had a few books on rocks, and using the most specific headings would send the patron scuttling between too many different file drawers. I do not believe that this is a good match for the desired use case.
