Yes - IMO including the example in RDF Schema does suffice.

I note, however, that removing refs to the old Primer leaves the mention of a
"2004 version" in [1] unexplained.  This could perhaps be addressed without
drawing too much attention to the superseded primer simply by adding a few
words to [1], along with a reference to Primer 1.0 [2], or at least with a
clickable link.
