Ian's question was about what happens when it goes down forever, or gets
taken over, intercepted, squatted, spoofed or redirected because of a
malicious DNS. I should have known better how to ask it. The browser cache
cannot handle these cases.

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.
