In Mar 2019, the EU approved the new Copyright Directive by an absurdly slim margin (it passed by 5 votes and later 10 MEPs said they got confused and pressed the wrong button; due to procedural rules, despite an amended total showing a majority AGAINST, it still passed).

#mastodon uses alsoKnownAs for account migration, but it's not officially in the #ActivityStreams vocabulary. Does anyone have opinions on a formal definition and adding it as an extension?
