Dear Martin,

Thank you for your comment
      <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-owl-comments/ 
2009Jan/0003.html>
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.

The hardcoded references to Unicode 3.0 were inherited from RDF and  
RDF/XML. Upon investigation, the WG decided that we did not need to  
and should not add more "point of update" for Unicode (or XML)  
references in spite of our dependancy on RDF and RDF/XML.  
Accordingly, we have shifted to a generic reference, as described in:

         <http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod/#sec-RefUnicode>

The reference text is available at:

	<http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/References/unicode>

and we welcome any other suggestions you might have. (Changes to this  
template will propagate throughout our documents.)

We have added text to our conformance document describing the  
situtation. We also filed a bug report against the RDF specs:

         <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/ 
2009JanMar/0001.html>

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
