Thanks for the comments, Boris and Bijan; I believe I've addressed the
issues you raised.   Also all the ones I listed, except:

> >     -- some of the text in the 'Status of this Document' is just
> >        placeholder text
> >     -- there are no 'latest version' links

and the co-References aren't quite done (authors/editors are omitted).

(I'm handling co-References by automatically replacing the reference
entries to other wiki documents in the same publication set, with
generated text.  What's on the wiki in that spot doesn't matter except
for what link it contains.)

See 
    http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/draft/ED-owl-syntax-20080101/
    http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/draft/ED-owl-semantics-20080101/
    http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/draft/ED-owl-mapping-to-rdf-20080101/

The biggest remaining issue, I think, is exactly how the "latest
version" links work.  This is a tricky issue, which I hope to talk to
some of my co-workers about as they return from vacation.  It's all
about how W3C documents are sort-of updated on the web while also not
changing.  For example, look at:

    http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/draft/ED-owl-syntax-20080101/#References

and see how the "latest version" URIs for both "[OWL 1.1 Semantics]" and
"[OWL Semantics and Abstract Syntax]" are the same.  This is probably
not right at this stage -- they are quite different documents -- but
it's not clear what's better.  In a sense, they should converge.  Five
years from now, they may both be superceded by a now "owl-semantics"
document, right?  Anyway, I don't think the WG needs to pay a lot of
attention to this; hopefully I'll get it sorted out shortly.
