Hi!

Only some trivial/minor things, no change of the intended content of the proposed mail:

"your" ?

"They" ?

Maybe better "Primer" (capitalized).

"OWL 2 Document Overview [document]" (the second "document", while correct, sounds a bit strange after the change).

              ^^
"OWL 2" (looks like "it" refers to "owl:pattern".

>reuses rdfs:Datatype instead of datarange)
                                 ^^^^^^^^^^
"owl:DataRange"
