In order to get away a bit from this notion of an "implementation
techniques" based distinction (although I am personally quite happy with it,
because the "users" of our profiles are actually implementors of semantic
services or tools or whatever, and they probably often enough *will*, quite
significantly, perceive such differences between implementation aspects):

What about comparing OWL-R with the other profiles w.r.t. the computational
complexity of solving a certain reasoning task, which has not yet been
mentioned in the profiles document: Calculating the entailment closure (or
perhaps a sized part of it) of a given knowledge base for the respective
language? Would this make sense?
