I don’t have any problem in publishing a preprint on archiv.org or similar open for comments, and prior to submission to a journal. But until this preprint is ready I am not comfortable in having a publicly accessible working paper, so my preference is still for a google docs with contributors only.

Sorry to post something somewhat off-topic, but this statement is not
correct - peer-reviewed publications can absolutely be developed in
the open, and even some vintage pay-for-access journals such as ES&T
will allow you to publish pre-prints on e.g. archiv.org
paper would be the supporting documentation for the choices and use of
the ontology, I would strongly recommend that it a) be developed in
the open, so that people can read up on its use, and any new changes
that you might make, and b) be submitted to an truly open access
journal such as ERL or PLOS One.
