To: OWL Working Group WG <public-owl-wg@w3.org>

Following the vigorous discussion, and even though I have no action  
here :), I thought I'd try my hand at drafting some text about  
profiles intended, I think, for the primer. The result is here:
	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/Profile_Explanations

(Separated, since I don't want to touch the primer while sandro is  
getting us to pub. Also, I guess we could drop it into the Profiles  
doc.)

It's still fairly preliminary, esp. the descriptions of the  
individual subsetting profiles. I have some "it's more rdfish" text  
in the OWL-R section, in spite of the dangers, partially because I  
couldn't think of anything else at the moment :) So don't shoot me  
<cough> Ivan  </cough>. ;)

I suspect that we'll have some sort of cheat sheets for the profiles  
as well.

I'm a bit concerned about overloading primer readers with too much  
detail about the profiles. But I'd also like the profiles document to  
be very spec like and implementor oriented. One possibility is to  
break this discussion out into a separate document, either in the WG  
or in the OWLED Education task force.

One advantage of moving it out of the WG is that being controversial  
is rather less damaging. An advantage of moving it out of the primer  
is that we can include a lot more detail.

Thoughts?

Cheers,
Bijan.
