I third that.
I beleive it may help though if we nut this out in some form of workshop where we can produce a core model that "merges" LSID Vocs and DwC concepts.  This model could then be applied to various representations - eg an RDF represntation that is domain indepentdent, DwC RDF version (the current one), etc depending on the "use case" in question.

I'd fully second that. Guiding users of the ontology in how a term is
meant to be applied should not, and does not need to infringe on the
assertions entailed by that.
