This doesn't seem to scale. That is, I don't see why we wouldn't then  
also acknowledge that it builds on DAML+OIL. In the guide, these are  
all in an appendix anyway:

Looking at some other W3C specs (e.g., XSLT)  things like DSSSL (the  
prior version) are just listed as references:
	http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt#section-Other-References

And removed entirely in XSLT2:
	http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20/

Though in the abstract:
	XSLT 2.0 is a revised version of the XSLT 1.0 Recommendation [XSLT  
1.0] published on 16 November 1999.

And there's:
	http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt20/#introduction

Though these are of the spec.

The WSDL 2.0 primer doesn't have any such stuff about WSDL 1.1  
upfront (though WSDL 1.1 was very widely used).

So, I'm unsure.

Given that the abstract already mentions that OWL 2 extends OWL 1 and  
we'll have a section on it, does it help readers to also get it in  
the intro?

Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Cheers,
Bijan.
