Thanks for the review (and editing).

You fixed the editorial stuff while reviewing (thanks!) and Mike/ 
Markus have already dealt with most of your other comments.

The one outstanding point was the comment on datatype maps. I have  
updated the document to mention both OWL 2 datatype maps (as defined  
in SS&FS) and OWL 2 Full datatype maps (as defined in R-BS) -- see  
[1] for diffs.

It is slightly unfortunate that this means more use of "Full" -- I  
wonder if OWL 2 Full datatype maps shouldn't have been called OWL 2  
RDF-Based datatype maps, but that is another issue.
