I don't have time to review all the documents so just some brief
thoughts on what I've seen:

Welcome features:

Great to have a document on the Manchester OWL syntax, and the BNF is
extremely useful.

The documents on the different language profiles is extremely welcome as
are the different tractable fragments. For us the tractable fragments
are extremely useful in providing guidance on which aspect of OWL 2 to
use for certain problems. We expect to have many applications of OWL at
Ordnance Survey, and each of these fragments will be applicable for
solving different problems. Also section 5 on the computation properties
was a very welcome and useful (and something I'd wanted to see for a
while). This should make things clearer to Person and not Logician. 

For our particular applications I welcome the introduction of:

QCRs, Property Chains, asymmetric properties, disjoint properties, keys,
annotation properties, extended data types, disjoint union (a great
space saver).
