Re: [OWLWG-COMMENT] Example why current RDF mapping for QCRs might hurt OWL-1.1-Full [Re: PROPOSAL to close ISSUE-68]

Referring to my recent email, it occurs to me that the backward 
compatibility condition can be more elegantly stated as

owl:Resource rdfs:subClassOf owl:UQResource .

and that this can be regarded as an extra semantic condition on 
OWL/RDF 1.0 ontologies. Since this condition is vacuous in a purely 
OWL 1.0 framework, it is harmless there, but it provides the semantic 
'bridge' to enable OWL 1.0 to be considered a subset of OWL 1.1.

I presume that the OWL version will be available eg from the XML 
header, so processors will know whether or not this condition applies.
