A revised version of the Requirement is now available at
http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/OWL2NewFeatures.

It is based on the discussions & strawpolls at the F2F and review comments.
The objective of this updated version "New Features & Rationale", is
to focus on an overview of the new features that have been added to
OWL 2 and of their rationale. Find below the main changes:

- renamed "Requirements" into "New Features & Rationale"
- moved the core section "Features" up,  to be the first, as unanimously agreed
- rolled sections 4 (req) into 5 (features)
- moved the use cases to an appendix, as wished by the majority (strawpoll)
- refered to the UCs from the section "features"
- cut section 2 (users and applications), as proposed mainly by Bijan
- completed and updated some features
- All the UCs  in the Appendix follow a common  pattern as asked
Elis'as review earlier: Overview, Features, Example, Literature.
- separated References and UCs Biblio

There might still be  some polishing to do (add links, etc. ) but it
gives a good idea of the new proposed version.
It would be helpful now to check whether all content is up-to-date
w.r.t last decisions in particular at the F2F or wherther the document
should be fixed in some places.

All your comments and feedback are welcome.
