Thanks a lot for doing so. However, when I tried to test this feature, I 
couldn't find it, i.e., I do not really how it is display. My testcase 
(see [1]) was the Cognitive Characteristics Ontology [1] where each term 
definition that belongs to this ontology specification is assigned with 
a vs:term_status relation. In the human-readable representation (that is 
rendered with SpecGen v6 [2]) the term status is displayed as well, 
i.e., that's what I expected from your vs:term_status feature 
implementation as well. How do you think about this?

Here are some further remarks re. Parrot:

1. References to terms of external vocabularies (other namespace):
- these links do not work at them moment, e.g., [4] should refer to 
- display CURIEs for terms of external vocabularies, e.g., [5] should be 
displayed as xsd:integer

2. Rendering knowledge of further relations:
- displaying whether a concept is a owl:Class and/or rdfs:Class
- displaying whether a term is derived from another term (sub class 
relations (from external vocabulary terms (?))), e.g., [6] is a sub 
class of wo:Weight
- displaying complex domains and ranges of properties, e.g., [7] has 
domain of "cco:CognitiveCharacteristic or cco:CharacteristicDynamics"

3. Rendering of individuals:
- in addition to concepts and properties

4. Optional including of further documentation parts as snippets, e.g.,
- 'at a glance' section
- background section
- examples section
- changes history

5. RDFa support:
- I would love to see this (SpecGen v6 supports this ;) )

8. References to alternative serialisations of the ontology specification:
- see, e.g., the header of [8]

That's all so far.
