Don't you think the OWL should contain something like

<> owl:versionIRI
<www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-prov-o-20120501/ProvenanceOntology.owl>  ?

I would +1 that as people like myself will download the OWL locally
for processing with say Sesame-Elmo, and it later will be important to
know which one it is based on.

We just need to know the magic date to add it in advance.
