As a foundation for data sources meant to be usable in the long term, the value of any given vocabulary depends on the perceived certainty that the vocabulary -- in both its machine-readable and human-readable forms -- will remain reliably accessible over time and that its URIs will not be sold, re-purposed, or simply forgotten. Vocabulary maintainers move on to other projects or retire. Resources owned by institutions may be neglected or become unavailable. As the givers of meaning to datasets, vocabularies are of vital importance to the scholarly record and cultural memory. However, their preservation will not happen automatically; it must be planned.
