While developing a XSLT for daml-ont, we discovered that the content of the
daml-ont spec at http://www.daml.org/2000/10/daml-ont# had changed from the
original: from (v1.2, 2000/10/11) to (v1.2 2000/11/14). Although the updated
version contained some improvements, the version number did not change, nor
did the reference (the URL).  

In order to preserve referential integrity, it is best not to change the
content of this type of resource after publication.  Versions should be
maintained, each with unique references.  It also very helpful to maintain a
change log or revision history so that developers will be able to follow the
revisions and updated their work accordingly.
