In our opinion, it is very timely to go forward with establishing this 
working group in order to advance OWL by taking expressed user needs and 
new theoretical results into account. The OWL1.1 member submission and 
the inputs from the OWLED workshop series are a very good basis to build 
upon, as expressed in the charter.

We think, however, that the work on tractable fragments should be 
included in the charter, and that this work should be done in parallel 
from the very start, in the same working group. We believe that there is 
already broad consensus among experts which fragments should be 
considered, and the corresponding document of the OWL1.1 member 
submission is an excellent account of it. The fragments are already 
supported by existing OWL reasoners, and specialised implementations 
exist or are under way.
