I did some fact-finding related to WordNet.

* Investigate fr in the prolog, find examples, etc.

The fr relation relates verb synset_ids to sentence frames.
A sentence frame can be for example "1 Something ----s",
"2 Somebody ----s", or "3 It is ----ing".  Sentence frames
are documented in [1].

So one example would be synset_id 202689066 (become clear;
"The sky cleared after the storm"), consisting of words
(clear_up, clear, light_up, brighten).  The associated
sentence frames for synset_id 202689066 are "1 Something ----s"
and "3 It is ----ing".

* Investigate maintenance policy re synset IDs

I haven't found anything in the official documentation regarding
the maintenance policy of synset IDs.  However, it seems that the
synset IDs change across versions.  For example,
synset_id 202689066 in WordNet 2.0 was synset_id 202187270 in
WordNet 1.7.1, and 201893399 in Melnik's WordNet/RDF version.
