Hi,

I find the use of 'URI' in the syntax document rather unclear. There  
seem to be two different usages:
* one that denotes an identifier (as in ontologyURI, owlClassURI,  
owlObjectPropertyURI), and
* one that denotes a type (as in annotationURI)

It would be good to distinguish between the two, as it can get really  
confusing (e.g. when trying to understand annotations). Secondly,  
these names are based on the datatype of the value, and not on their  
intended interpretation (trying to avoid the word meaning here...).
