Dear Jim,

Thank you for your comment
      <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-owl-comments/ 
2009Jan/0004.html>
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.

Obviously, it is important that the spec be clear to everyone. The  
working group was unsure whether your database expertise "got in the  
way" of seeing the rationale or not, but regardless, it is worth  
trying to avoid such confusions. To this end, we've added a couple of  
sentences to the first paragraph of
        <http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/Syntax#Keys>
which we hope will prevent such confusion in the future.

Please note that we will have a more extensive documentation of the  
rationale behind this design in the NF&R as well as some discussion  
in the primer. The working group will contact you when those  
documents reach last call to see if the overall solution meets your  
concerns.

Please acknowledge receipt of this email to <mailto:public-owl- 
comments@w3.org> (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.

Regards,
Bijan Parsia
on behalf of the W3C OWL Working Group
