ISSUE-111 (userintentsignaling): There's no way to signal the intended semantics of an OWL document

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

Raised by: Bijan Parsia
On product: 

Right now, we have no way for a publisher to indicate what the intended semantics (OWL DL, OWL Full, or even RDFS) of an OWL Document. In most cases, it's possible to guess well based on the "used vocabulary" in the document because the semantics coincide, but in some cases the sanctioned entailments diverges (e.g., finite owl:Things). It would be nice if we could give authors some way to indicate what semantics they intended e.g., by introducing mime types or by having some ontology properties.
