Limitations of OWL 1.1 to RDF mapping

The current OWL 1.1 Mapping to RDF Graphs draft [1] states

"Not every OWL 1.1 ontology can be serialized in RDF. In particular, 
ontologies using the following features of OWL 1.1 cannot be serialized:

1. punning and
2. annotations on axioms."

Could anyone please clarify the implications of this statement.  Is the 
plan of the group to leave it like this, or are changes to the OWL 1.1 
spec underway to ensure that there will be a complete mapping to RDF 
Graphs?  Or, will we see an "OWL 1.0.9" that will be complete in RDF but 
with less features than 1.1?

Thanks,
Holger
