Great stuff!

Wondering if you could add rdfs:isDefinedBy relations to this ontology? 
Doing so makes it much more navigable.

Here's the current state of affairs showcasing limited TBox navigability:

1. http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/describe/?url=http://purl.org/muto/core
2. 
http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/describe/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fpurl.org%2Fmuto%2Fcore%23tagMeaning&urilookup=1 
.

Once you add the isDefinedBy relations, the ontology description page 
becomes the launch pad for powerful FYN exploration across both the 
ontology TBox and and associated ABox.
