In the first last call we seemed to reach a difference of opinion concerning the overall design.
I register a formal objection on behalf of TopQuadrant, based on our comments:

In particular:
[[
An alternative, possibly better approach to addressing this comment, might be to rebrand most, if not all, of the new features of OWL2, as "Web-SROIQ", and put them in a separate namespace, not branded as OWL, so that the (vast) majority of Semantic Web users for whom these features are neither useful nor helpful, but merely confusing, can rest more easily in ignoring them. Notice the choice of name for the rebranding does not include the string "OWL".
