Evolving Taxonomy: Reasons why data would be missing

I have been working on a sample taxonomy with a fairly substantial list of all of the reasons why data would be missing. Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t allow me to upload OWL files, and the taxonomy is large enough that screenshots aren’t too helpful. Protege does fortunately have a way of exporting taxonomies as text, so here’s a sample of what it looks like at the moment. (Without documentation or constraints)
