Hi, and thanks for the draft! I would like to make some suggestions  
regarding the structure of the language reference: would it be  
possible to name & order the 'headers' such that they reflect their  
content? E.g.,  an Object Property Restriction is a class description,  
and so are other restrictions and class expressions. In contrast,  
axioms have a different status. Could and should this somehow be  
reflected or taken into account? Cheers, Uli
