ISSUE-114 (general punning): Which combinations of punning should be allowed?


Raised by: Michael Schneider
On product: 

At F2F2 we have decided to drop punning between different kinds of properties (data, object and annotation properties). 

Aside from individual/class punning, for which the WG has identified several usecases, there are still a lot of other possibilities to pun. From the first version of the DL Semantics working draft:

    Since OWL 1.1 allows punning [Metamodeling] in the signature, 
    we do not require the sets N_C, N_Po, N_Pd, N_I, N_D, and N_V 
    to be pair-wise disjoint. Thus, the same name can be used 
    in an ontology to denote a class, a datatype, a property 
    (object or data), an individual, and a constant.

So, as an example, it is still possible to pun between classes and an object properties.

We have to decide, which of the possible combinations of syntactical categories do we want to allow for punning.
