Hello all

Just trying to incorporate Common Tag elements in a customer ontolgy ...
Two remarks
- The date seems to me a very important piece of information, in 
particular if you look at tags from the vocabulary management, and/or 
search engines viewpoint. First, labels change more often than concepts, 
and second, a search engine would be happy to leverage on date 
information to show trendy concepts and tags. Which concepts were used 
as tag today or in the past week/month/year.
- And to follow François, I'm very surprised not to find any "taggedBy" 
property in the vocabulary.

That said, why not use simply dc:creator and dc:date to this effect?
