I propose to resolve ISSUE-106 and ISSUE-109 by making the owl2 and
owl2xml namespaces be the same as the owl namespace.

Instead of the following namespaces
owl 	      http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#
owl2 	      http://www.w3.org/2006/12/owl2#
owl2xml       http://www.w3.org/2006/12/owl2-xml#
the situation would be
owl 	      http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#
owl2 	      http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#
owl2xml       http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#
Actually there would then be no need for separate namespace prefixes.

This means that owl2:onClass is in the same namespace as owl:onProperty,
as is owl2xml:OWLClass
