Simon, Chris,

As you'll have seen, I've put the request in place to publish the Time 
ontology tomorrow. It's in place at 
https://www.w3.org/TR/2016/WD-owl-time-20160712/. I've made various 
changes, some trivial, some more meaningful.

First and foremost, we needed to address the issue raised by Ghislain 
concerning the namespace file at http://www.w3.org/2006/time. We will 
that namespace to remain and to dereference to various serialisations 
(RDF/XML, Turtle and, I hope, with a JSON-LD context file).

The rules on deleting terms are as follows:

1. Don't.

2. Terms may be deprecated.

3. If you want to change the semantics of a term: don't. Mint a new one, 
deprecate the old one.

4. If you want to clarify an existing definition: please do.

I added a note to the abstract to this effect

Other issues

Please confirm that

is correct. There was some confusion around whether it should be 
time:intervalOverlaps or time:Overlaps.

@simon - one of your DOIs was a 404. I can't tell you how happy that 
made me https://twitter.com/philarcher1/status/752531655785611264

After intensive research (ahem, Google), I found 


I have also added the link to the previous version and a diff to the top 

I have re-done the references using ReSpec's in-built system. All W3C 
specs, RFCs and more can all be referenced without having to do things 
manually. So to refer to RFC2445 you just write [[RFC2445]].

In a future version, we'll need to add in a conformance statement and 
flag the sections that are not normative. Again, ReSpec takes care of a 
lot of this (section class="informative"> for example). But that can wait.

I made most of my changes before taking the snapshot so they should be 
easy to use in your future editing work.
