This paper is generally relevant to the semantics, though it doesn't solve
the specific problem:

Representing and Querying Validity Time in RDF and OWL: A Logic-Based
Approach✩
Boris Motik, Oxford University Computing Laboratory, Oxford, UK

PROV-O can handle the use case, but has the downside of being PROV-O, and
requiring a few blank nodes (validity is a bit fuzzy).

http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/REC-prov-o-20130430/#Revision

Also, note that the ontology named by a version IRI is fixed;  if the IRI
becomes impossible to dereference, the cached content should always be
valid;  however, this may not be the case if the base IRI is used.  The
contents of the LOV-back-machine is as valid as it ever was.
 It is possible that an unversioned ontology  might have changed between
the last capture and the 404
