Yes, I think so as well but it also depends on whether this is a 
recommendation, a note, and so forth.

At least not in my experience working with them. If they see that 'xyz' 
is used in an ontology they are going to use, then they would like to 
find out what xyz is and if they find out that it is an ontology that 
has been created years ago by a private person and that there is no 
support for it and no other major player is using said ontology, they 
will be unhappy.

Prov-o is very visible without all of this and so is old-SSN, DUL, FOAF, 
and so on.
