We were in a meeting about VCWG related stuff in perth and one of the
issues i considered (perhaps we all did) was version control / provenance.

The issue i highlighted was where an ontological definition may change in
future, which in-turn may change the inferred meaning of the claim.  The
example i used was https://schema.org/Physician (currently a 'place') which
may in future define a professional (in relation to "person")

One way of solving this seemed to be to package the ontological definition
used.

Another would be to require version control on the ontology (but this may
be difficult to enforce?)

other thoughts?

Tim.
