The TAG has taken up a related issue:

 XMLVersioning-41: What are good practices for designing extensible XML
languages and for handling versioning?
 http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/issues.html#XMLVersioning-41

We just had another interesting discussion of it today.

Dave Orchard is working on a finding
  [Editorial Draft] Extending and Versioning Languages Part 1
  http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/versioning-20060726.html

It includes some UML diagrams that I have converted to OWL
with XSLT. I need to review this 26 July draft and update
my OWL stuff, but you might be interested in a little
item I wrote up back in February...

 Using RDF and OWL to model language evolution

This is all very much work in progress. You're more than
welcome to take a look.

Actually, the more relevant bit might be a 30 Sep message
references from that Feb weblog item...

formally defining W3C's namespace change policy options w.r.t. recent
TAG versioning terminology
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-swbp-wg/2005Sep/0136

Wow... I see a version of changePolicy.n3 on local disk here
that's not checked in... I sure hope for time to swap this
all in and get more organized.
