Dear all,

I just reviewed the issue with the missing versionIRI in the OWL DL version of the SKOS ontology. 

The proposed solution

> That http://www.w3.org/2009/08/skos-reference/skos-owl1-dl.rdf
> be edited to add the triple:
>     <http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core>
>         <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#versionIRI>
>             <http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-reference/skos-owl1-dl.rdf> .

ensures conformance of the two SKOS versions (Full and DL) with the OWL 2 specification [1]. 

Although the wording in the specification is in terms of "previous" and "future" versions, there is no formal reason why the OWL 2 versioning mechanism does not also apply to *alternate* versions of (essentially) the same ontology. I believe this was also the intention of the WG.
