> I think we can't because vocab.org says the canonical URIs are in purl.org. It's like referring to dublincore.org for the DCMI terms.

This is correct. However as far as I can tell the URIs are still resolvable.

They are not hosted on purl.org but are registered as a redirect to vocab.org so there should not be any issue with purl.org changing owner.

It's a shame that the purl.org URIs appear to have some availability issues, but this is the web so occasional temporary breakages are to be expected. The meaning of the URIs stands regardless of whether they can be resolved at any particular time. 

I chose purl.org as a URI provider to give more stability and longevity than could be expected from an individual. That said, I have provided the vocab.org website for 15 years and have no plans to cease providing it. I also have an availability statement on the site that states I will hand it over to another party if I am unable to continue hosting it: http://vocab.org/policies/availability

One mitigation for purl.org availability would be to import the schema from vocab.org directly http://vocab.org/vann/vann-vocab-20050401.rdf
