Dear Michael,

Thank you for your comment
      <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-owl-wg/2009Feb/ 
0256.html>
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.

Thank you for pointing out this problem. The Syntactic Conformance  
section of the Conformance and Test Cases document (see [1]) has been  
revised to be clearer in general and to rectify this error in  
particular -- it now explicitly refers to RDF/XML documents and says:

"An OWL 2 DL ontology document is an OWL 2 Full ontology document  
that can be successfully parsed using the canonical parsing process  
as defined in the OWL 2 Syntax specification [OWL 2 Specification]  
and the procedure for mapping from RDF graphs to the structural  
specification described in the OWL 2 Mapping to RDF Graphs [OWL 2  
Mapping to RDF Graphs] to produce an instance of the OWL 2 ontology  
class satisfying all of the restrictions described in Section 3 of  
the OWL 2 Syntax specification [OWL 2 Specification]."

Note that in response to other last call comments Section 3 of the  
OWL 2 Syntax specification is being revised to ensure that it lists  
all the restrictions that apply to OWL DL ontology structures.
