ISSUE-65 (excess vocab): REPORTED: excessive duplication of vocabulary

http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/tracker/issues/

Raised by: Jeremy Carroll
On product: 


The member submission documents seem to replace a good many properties from OWL 1.0 with three properties in OWL 1.1. (The old version, and two new versions, one for data properties, and one for object properties)

This:
- creates additional work for implementors
- creates additional work for documentation writers
- potentially creates confusion for people as they learn the language

Do the benefits outweight these (and other) costs?
