Dear Umberto,

Thank you for your comment
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-owl-comments/2009Apr/0075.html>
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.

response to your comment.
