I formally objected to imports during OWL 1.0, have seen nothing to  
change my mind.  This objection was backed by a couple of other  
people, I cannot now find the record - it was the only formal  
objection from the WG, and the W3C Director chose to let us go to  
recommendation despite this objection, (as I encouraged him to,  
sometimes the chair really has to wear two hats!)
