In recent days I've been attending a lot of meetings where I have 
been approached by people talking about not just the limitations of 
the current OWL (something I've been hearing about for a long time 
:-)) but actually talking about proposed technical solutions.   I 
think it would be good to start to collect some of these and to think 
a bit about those things that we might want to see go into some 
future OWL version
   There's a wide variety of these things going from simple extensions 
to OWL (such as adding qualified restrictions, having an 
owl:allDisjoint , etc.)  to adding some standard ways of doing common 
things in other KR langauges  (part-whole, bounded transitivity, 
probability models)  or going beyond to new concepts in Sem Web (new 
models of partial import, named ontology segments, etc.)
   I'd like to hear what people are working on, or what people need - 
this way we'll have these ideas on record for the eventual next 
generation of OWL technology.
