A good choice.

I've put new version at https://github.com/stain/oa/  (look, I used
the same shortname).

NO! That would just be evil - what would be the point of those version
numbers at all then?

Let's make a 20130208 version. It should also say in some obvious
highlight at the top that the namespace has changed.

Also include a link to the OWL version quite separately at the top (by
relative IRI to "schema.xml") - specially as http://www.w3.org/ns/oa
is not there yet and would change in the future.   Thus say
http://www.openannotation.org/spec/core/20130208/schema.xml would stay
as it is.
