I was wondering about the same additions myself over the 
last few days and keeping DOAP unpolluted makes sense.

Using a separate schema for modeling temporal reification 
would seem like a good route since both current (and IMO 
more importantly) historical relationships could be modeled 
using the same mechanism.

     <rdf:subject rdf:resource="X" />
     <rdf:type rdf:resource="Y" />
     <rdf:object rdf:resource="Z" />
     <???:period rdf:resource="#when1" />

   <duration rdf:id="#when1">

[* note ??? namespace.]

/me wonders about having the content automatically generated 
based on CVS activity :-)
