Hi Nathan,

A nice side-effect of the need for CORS support is that one can easily  
distinguish living, actively supported ontologies from abandoned PhD  
thesis components ;-)

In fact I think that any of the prototypes for search engines for  
ontologies should show this property (but please check the feature at  
the current download location for purl.org namespaces, for the known  
reason, i.e. resolve the ontology URI to the final redirect and carry  
out your check against that URI).
Best
