[rdfweb-dev] Labelling stability of FOAF vocabulary properties

I like the vocab-tagging idea, and regarding vocab for it there's overlap
(read interop) with the allegedly general-purpose project vocab [1] I've
been tinkering with on and off. The choices you've made are very handy for
me in a use-case sort of way.

Specifically :

> - status: literal value (stable, unstable, testing)

I've currently got {Unassigned, Open, Resolved... - Live/Test?} which
reflects the different focus, so I guesss I should leave this open. Perhaps
for vocab-tagging you could use the OWL literal choice enumeration tricks
described by danbri and Morten recently?

> - creation date: date property/class was added

I've got submittedDate, startDate, targetDate and finishDate and still am
not sure how I'd say 'creation date'...

> - issues: pointing to a resource describing issues/discussion of
> this property relating
>   to its move from testing -> stable

The nearest I've got for this would be Goals (and perhaps hasReport). One of
my starting points was specifically 'issues', so it looks like I've drifted
a bit while generalizing there.

> - examples: pointing to documentation about using this property,

Not got, unless 'hasReport' is stretched hard. I like it though.
