I got this comment from my colleague Lourens van der Meij:

I think this makes sense: we (and the previous SW Best Practices group) have issued quite some versions of the RDF files, which are now circulating here and there. It would be nice to allow developpers to identify for sure that what they get is the right vocabulary.
Would it be possible to add some editorial note to all our RDF vocabulaires [1,2,3] saying that these are representing our Aug 18 version?

Note that I'm not asking for a complete versioning system: just an XML-commented text (using <!-- -->) pointing to the time-stamped HTML documents on the W3C site would be enough as a basic solution, I think.
