A question about relationships to other groups:
I only see W3C groups listed.  The OMG Ontology Definition Metamodel
(ODM) specification includes both a metamodel and a UML profile for 
OWL as normative parts.  Clearly ODM has a dependency on the work of 
the OWL wg.  But in addition, the OWL 1.1 submission includes a UML-based 
description and a MOF metamodel which creates a functional overlap 
in what ODM and the OWL revision may provide.  We should plan to talk 
about this overlap at some point, and we may as well make the relationship 
between OWL wg and OMG formal since both co-chairs of the ODM Finalization 
Task Force (Elisa Kendall and myself) are already OWL wg members.
