ISSUE-51 (Language Name): Name of the Poduct

On product: 

This should be obvious, but I thought we should get it in the issue list before the first documents go out.  When this WG was proposed, there was a lot of pushback against the name OWL 1.1 (some people didn't like version numbers at all, some thought this was the wrong version number, and there were a couple of other comments in various mailing lists).  Our charter is careful and never calls the output of the group OWL 1.1, it simply uses that term to refer to the member submission.
 
The WG has to decide affirmatively whether to go forward with the 1.1 name or whether to use another name (DLOWL, OWL 2, OWL).  In addition, since the charter stresses backward compatibility, we'll probably have to make sure there is some documentation of how to refer to the older version (which was never called OWL 1.0)
