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
