ISSUE-21 (import-target-match): REPORTED: match of owl:import target to imported ontology uri undesirable?

"An ontology O directly imports an ontology O' if O contains an import declaration whose value is 
the ontology URI of O'."

This seems to prevent a style of version management in which multiple versions of an ontology with  the same ontology URI are posted at different URLs. The importing ontology then chooses which  version to use by specifying a versioned URL. Unfortunely, given the spec, an ontology intended to  be imported in this way would not in fact be imported.

See, e.g. http://protege.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?URIsURLsAndVersioning
