Several months later..

UnCool URIs might have to change, so how would one go about it, 
specifically scoped to Vocabs/Ontologies at the minute.

Let's use FOAF as an example.

My gut feeling is to create a new Ontology, the same but using 
fragments, make it available at a new URI, then encourage people to use 
that instead.

As for BC and migration, have the relevant 
replaces/obsoletes/isReplacedBy/equivalentTo in both ontologies, then 
wait for migration to happen. You certainly remove the existing FOAF 
ontology, but why can't you migrate to a new one?

Surely, on this web of ours, we must have a way to correct mistakes, 
upgrade things or change designs.

Best,

Nathan
