It's the Web, so state of the cert ontology doesn't matter if you extend 
it via another ontology [1][2].

We can't centralize ontology management and expect web-like expansion. 
If we live in the Web then we should operate by the rules of the host 
ecosystem i.e., just extend things using relations identified by HTTP 
URIs using RDF Language statements :)
