Dear Richard,

Thank you for your comment
      <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-owl-comments/2009Apr/0066.html 
 >
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.

In order to avoid any possible confusion we have added some text to  
the OWL 2 Primer that clarifies the meaning of class and the  
correspondence with concept (see <http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/index.php?title=Primer&diff=23518&oldid=23517 
 >).

As a historical remark, the use of "class" in OWL 2 comes from its  
prior use in related representation systems. RDF uses "class" (as  
opposed to "concept" or another term). The original version of OWL  
uses "class" to be compatible with RDF.

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,
Sebastian Rudolph
on behalf of the W3C OWL Working Group
