In terms of linking between versions of the schema, these W3C PROV
predicates may be useful:

* http://www.w3.org/TR/prov-primer/

prov:wasRevisionOf
prov:wasDerivedFrom
prov:wasRevisionOf

>From OWL and dcterms:

owl:versionIRI
owl:priorVersion
dc:isVersionOf


>From XKOS (for more granular relations between (versions of) vocabularies):

* https://github.com/linked-statistics/xkos/blob/master/xkos.ttl
* http://www.ddialliance.org/Specification/RDF/XKOS

xkos:supersedes
xkos:precedes
xkos:succeeds
[...]

There's likely some insight here:

It may be helpful to ask a question here: http://answers.semanticweb.com/

The Talis Changeset vocabulary does seem very approachable:
