Many of the the things which we will call "issues" in our daily work on Full
will effectively be questions analog to what the OWL-1.1-DL editor drafts'
authors had to deal with, when they created these drafts within the last few
years. This all has been done in "relative silence", i.e. without any WG
involvement. Now, that the drafts have been finished, the WG has made them
into WDs and raises issues about the current state of these documents. 

So we might want to copycat: Create an OWL-Full editor's draft in "relative
silence", and then put it in front of the WG, in order to make it into a WD
and to raise issues. 

This is the most efficient way to work, I think. We don't have several
years, paired with workshops and conferences, and many people discussing and
researching, to create OWL-Full. We have to work pretty efficiently.

Of course not, as I said myself in my previous mail.

Ok, I have to leave my office,
