Request for OWL 2 vocabulary file

I would appreciate if the OWL working group would deliver (and maintain) 
an RDF specification of the OWL 2 vocabulary, as discussed below, in the 
RDF/XML exchange format.  While the OWL namespace document itself cannot 
be changed at this stage, I would suggest that a new version of that 
file is placed on some other W3C site as long as OWL 2 is still evolving.

Many thanks
Holger

Hi Michael,

hmm, I am a bit surprised.  Assuming that OWL 2 is supposed to become
the next version of the OWL namespace, then what were the plans to
upgrade those online documents of the OWL vocabulary?  Shouldn't such an
RDF file have been a primary deliverable of the working group?  After
all, OWL is part of the Semantic Web stack in which linked data
principles such as dereferencable URIs play some role?

I'll post my request to the comments list as you propose.

Thanks
Holger
