hmm... still no versionOf, i.e. no
relationship between a specific version
and the generic thing that it's a version of, as
I requested 20 Nov.
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-webont-wg/2002Nov/0242.html

Everything else about this proposal looks fine, but
I still think versionOf is as important as
priorVersion.
