Re: ISSUE-96 (OWL1.1 vocabulary names): OWL-1.1 vocabulary naming in RDF mapping is not consistent

Hi Michael,

As far as I know, the names are intentional. The rationale is that the  
range of e.g. owl11:subObjectPropertyOf is a property, whereas the  
range of owl11:disjointObjectProperties is a *collection* of  
properties (as with e.g. allDisjoint)
