That's not a consequential benefit. It would be helpful if you were a  
little more careful in your reading.

A simple query of the issue list reveals:
	http://code.google.com/p/owl1-1/issues/detail?id=12

This is a very minimal piece of research. I.e., go to the owl wg home  
page:
	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/OWL_Working_Group

Under "inputs" click "Issues" then "issues list" to get to:
	http://code.google.com/p/owl1-1/issues/list

Then search for "n-ary".

It would also be helpful if you were a little less bold with  
unresearched claims. Esp. ones that suggest that people have been  
unresponsive to issues that you've raised.

There wasn't. The person just enumerated their general positions.

Generally, I mark proposals with the word "Proposal".

Cheers,
Bijan.
