[tdwg-tag] Where to put LSIDs on tdwg ontology objects

I believe any node allows rdf:about without interference with the OWL
version. But we need (I think) to refer in the document to various
GUIDable objects elsewhere in the documents. Since reification
requires (I think) rdf:ID, I am not sure rdf:about can be used....
