 <h2>Change history</h2>
+<p>Changes since <a href="">W3C
+    Working Draft 23 October 2012 (Last Call)</a>:
+  <li>Removed the range constraint
+  on <a href="#org:siteAddress">org:siteAddress</a> to allow other
+  encodings than VCard to be used.</li>
+  <li>Added a statement
+  that  <a href="#org:Organization">org:Organization</a> is equivalent
+  to the foaf:Organization class. This statement was present in the
+  ontology itself at the time of last call but not sufficiently clear
+  in this document.</li>
+  <li>Changed domain/range
+  of <a href="#org:reportsTo">org:reportsTo</a> to be just
+  foaf:Agent, removing the union
+  with  <a href="#org:Post">org:Post</a>. This does not change the
+  semantics since <a href="#org:Post">org:Post</a> is a subclass of foaf:Agent. </li>
+  <li>Removed informative comment that the org:reportsTo graph is
+  acyclic, this is not necessarily the case.</li>
