You're perfectly correct, we don't want people to change our
pre-defined Motivations, we want them to create their own in their own
namespaces.

The new:correcting and new2:fixing examples are the extensions, the
oa: namespaced terms are in the RDF example only to give something to
relate those hypothetical extensions to.

Hope that helps!
