... and also Temporal Hierarchical Ordinal Reference System ontology http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/details/vocabulary_thors.html

I understand the the W3C TIme ontology is likely to be revived as a consequence of the W3C/OGC Linking Geospatial Data workshop held at Google London last month -

FWIW what we have gathered so far in Linked Open Vocabularies regarding Time and Events is at

I have to add the new resources Osma has put in my radar in this conversation (SAPO, Change and maybe more).
The standardization of time/event/change ontology issue has been pending for years, without any substantial progress despite its importance.
The W3C Time Ontolgy has been stuck at draft stage since ... 2006. See  http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-time/
I tried as while ago to gather interested people in the framewaork of the LOV community, we had a first online meeting in December 2012 [1] but unfortunately there was no real follow-up.

Possibly something CIDOC CRM-based?

You are right, of course. I'll cc Tomi as a hint of this thread. He is responsible for the modeling in SAPO.

(Tomi, full archives are here: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-esw-thes/ - unfortunately you need to check both March and April)
