I want to follow up on Wednesday's telecon discussion, and determine  
how best to operationalise our (very) provisional decisions on  
fragments.

What I believe that we need is a new document that defines the  
(proposed) rec-track fragments. This document should define the  
syntax of the "scalable schema" (EL++ like) and "scalable data" (DL- 
Lite like) fragments, and the syntax and semantics of the "rules"  
fragment (DLP/OWL-Prime like). My understanding is that for the first  
two we only need syntax restrictions (the semantics are the same as  
for OWL 1.1 DL) and in the latter case we need syntax restrictions on  
the DL side (DLP) and a well defined semantics on the RDF side.

Comments?
