We are meant to publish something by early January at the latest.

On the table we have a proposal that we basically publish the three 
member submission docs.

Given that Jim and Deb both found that the lack of e-mail discussion was 
a problem - I wanted to go back to square one and try listing options - 
and seeing which of these options had some clear support.

Option 1:
(from telecon - with clear support)
Publish member submission documents, with disclaimer indicating that 
while this are the focus of our discussion they are not yet 'consensus' 
documents -
amendment from HP: perhaps not RDF Mapping

Option 2:
(variant of option 1)
Publish member submission documents but only those parts for which we 
already have consensus, with stubs where we don't have consensus yet.

I would expect this to emphasis subproperty chains and QCRs as the two 
main new consensus features

I doubt that there would be enough consensus over any part of the RDF 
Mapping doc to make it worth publishing.

Option 3:
My proposal from the telecon, dropped due to no obvious support at the 
Start with an OWL 1.1 requirements doc.
This would have the advantage of taking the possible readership of a 
FPWD with us; as opposed to the highly technical member submission docs, 
which are likely to only be meaningfully read by a tiny elite.

Are there other suggestions ... or advocacy?

While my preferences are option 3, then option 2 then option 1 - at the 
telecon I got the distinct impression that there was no support for 
anything other than option 1. I am happy to help advocate something else 
- but not in a minority of one.
