As this issue refers to another issue on Google code, we should probably 
check and correct cross-references when migrating. I have already made 
the appropriate modification for this issue, and will check others as well.

Best,

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.
