[p4-feedback] Feature Request: Option to generate a new URI when saving an ontology with 'Save As'

Dear List -

I have observed that the 'Save As' option permits to save multiple 
ontologies with the same URI starting from a given ontology file. In 
practice having multiple ontologies with the same URI can cause problems 
with import resolution and file opening via URI.

I am therefore wondering if it might be a useful feature to offer the 
option of generating a new URI for the ontology to save. This way it 
would be possible to create multiple ontologies via 'Save As' from the 
same original ontology without running into the troubles of having a 
number of ontologies with the same URI in the same directory.

Any comments on this proposal?

Best regards -
