Dear Umberto,

Thank you for your comment
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.

Unfortunately, adding syntactic sugar does have a significant
specification and consensus building cost, particularly as it adds to
the OWL 2 vocabulary, which has already been objected to by some
communities (see, e.g., [1]). Therefore the working group has decided
not to augment the language with the ObjectImplicationOf constructor at
this time.

Please acknowledge receipt of this email to
(replying to this email should suffice). In your acknowledgment please
let us know whether or not you are satisfied with the working group's
response to your comment.
