Looks like a great start, well done!

It would be nice to see some reference to, and inclusion of, the 
patterns than came out of SWBP. E.g. you currently seem to have one 
variant of the three n-ary relation patterns and I couldn't spot the 
classes-as-subjects pattern (but maybe didn't look hard enough).

Might also want to reference the ontology design patterns portal [1] 
which has some patterns relevant to the modelling section.

Any plans to make this a wiki so other people can contribute or at least
