As I mentioned in the teleconference on 23 January 2008,  I propose to
close ISSUE-90 by deprecating deprecation.

This requires the following changes:

Syntax: Add a note to the Differences section saying that deprecation of
 	classes, datatypes, and properties is deprecated and is not a
 	part of the functional syntax or structural specification.

	No other change.

Semantics: No change.

RDF Mapping: Add a new section at the (that will be much expanded later,
    	     probably) to mention that owl:DeprecatedClass and
    	     owl:DeprecatedProperty are not part of OWL 1.1.

   OPTION 1: Add a paragraph to Section 3 saying that triples of the
 	     form x rdf:type owl:DeprecatedClass where Type(x) contains
 	     owl:Class or rdfs:Datatype, or of the form x rdf:type
 	     owl:DeprecatedProperty where Type(x) contains
 	     owl:ObjectProperty or owl:DatatypeProperty or
 	     owl:AnnotationProperty are removed

   OPTION 2: No change to Section 3, which means that use of
   	     owl:DeprecatedClass or owl:DeprecatedProperty is not in OWL

I much prefer OPTION 2.
