Hi Jeremy!

What you say below sounds interesting to me, but I don't know about pD*. I remember that it has been mentioned several times in the WG in the context of OWL Prime. 

Can you (or someone else) please elaborate a bit on pD* and its relationship to triple entailment rules, or give a few pointers?
