Hi

The New Features and Rationale document [1] has the following RDF example:

:UpperLobeOfLung owl:disjointWith ( :MiddleLobeOfLung :LowerLobeOfLung ) .

However going by [2], [3] and [4] the correct syntax seems to be:

[] rdf:type owl:AllDisjointClasses ;
	owl:members ( :UpperLobeOfLung :MiddleLobeOfLung :LowerLobeOfLung ) .

Allowing a list of class descriptions for owl:disjointWith would break backwards compatibility anyway, or?

Regards,
  Simon
