If it's a popular vocabulary, it's probably been cached appropriately.
If it's an edge-case vocabulary previously unseen, some small # of
applications can't look up the meaning of attributes during the
downtime. But parsing can still happen, RDF graphs can still be created,

A vocab whose host goes down regularly will likely not be used often.
Selection of the fittest.
