Ken,    (01)

how about a SKOS model fragment like below ...    (02)

    <owl:Ontology rdf:about="">
        <owl:imports
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2009/08/skos-reference/skos.rdf"/>
    </owl:Ontology>    (03)

    <skos:Collection rdf:about="#Length">
    </skos:Collection>    (04)

    <skos:Collection rdf:about="#Weight">
    </skos:Collection>    (05)

    <skos:Collection rdf:about="#Color">
    </skos:Collection>    (06)

    <skos:Concept rdf:about="#Red">
    </skos:Concept>    (07)

    <skos:Concept rdf:about="#Yellow">
    </skos:Concept>    (08)

    <skos:Concept rdf:about="#Blue">
    </skos:Concept>    (09)

    <skos:Collection rdf:about="#DescriptionSet">
        <skos:member rdf:resource="#Length"/>
        <skos:member rdf:resource="#Weight"/>
        <skos:member rdf:resource="#Color"/>
    </skos:Collection>    (010)

    <skos:Collection rdf:about="#Color">
        <skos:member rdf:resource="#Red"/>
        <skos:member rdf:resource="#Yellow"/>
        <skos:member rdf:resource="#Blue"/>
    </skos:Collection>    (011)

The above could look like hard-coding, but it seems appropriate for
controlled vocab.
Please get me off-line for any details if you like.    (012)

Best,    (013)
