Semantic versioning with all its rules becomes quite messy to use IMHO.

Suggest using a simpler 'Accretion' versioning method. If you update the
ontology, it simply gets a new version number - no major/minor/patch
complexity.

Updates can be in the form of:
- new terms added
- terms deprecated
- term updated (without changing the meaning) - labels, comments,
descriptions, ...
- when meaning of a term changes, the existing term is deprecated, and new
term added
- ...

cheers
Sivaram
