1. In the sentence

Among other constructs, OWL 2 QL disallows existential quantification
of roles to a class expression, i.e. it can be stated that every
person has a parent but not that every person has a female parent.


the text "i.e." should be "e.g."

2.In
"whereas reasoners are used to query ontologies for implicit
knowledge, i.e. they determine whether a statement in question is a
logical consequence an ontology." The last  clause


does not parse in English.  Probably what is desired is
"i.e., they determine whether a statement in question is a logical
consequence in an ontology."

Note also that a comma is recommended by the Chicago Manual of Style
after "i.e.". Other authorities disagree. Does W3 have a punctuation
style guide?
