Two minor issues regarding URIs in the Syntax document:

* The Syntax document uses URIs of the site http://www.my.com in examples. 
Since this site is an existing commercial service, it is probably not a good 
choice for this purpose (especially since it may change content in 
uncontrolled ways). All examples should use one of the reserved domains 
example.org, example.com, example.net, or maybe some existing w3.org URLs.

* The Syntax documents uses URLs for the file: protocol which are broken. All 
file URLs must start with "file://" (two slashes) [1], but the ones in the 
Syntax document have just one slash. Also, it seems that it is common to write 
something like "file:///C|/Some/Path/" but also "file://C:/Some/Path" [2] 
(though the latter does not match [1]). Maybe just use a UNIX file path l 
"file:///usr/local/ontologies" if the convention for Windows is unclear.
