Clarification on this ISSUE-52"

 

Would like to propose that constructs for the following "extra-logical ?"
features be included in the OWL 1.1 Spec

 

1.	Proofs - probably as a sequence of entailments
2.	Entailments
3.	Explanations - probably as a human readable verbalizations of
entailments

 

The use case for the above is the need for an explanation feature for developing
and debugging large scale OWL ontologies.

A standardized specification of the above would enable better tool support for
these features enabling sharing of explanations

across tools and applications.. This will increase productivity of the ontology
developer.

 

Would like to discuss how this ISSUE is viewed as being within or beyond the
scope of the current WG.
