Hi all,

as an addendum to the primer updates: in an earlier communication, Uli  
communicated the feeling that the primer goes into detail rather  
quickly. Thus, I have come up with a gentle introductory section "What  
is OWL 2?" on the high-level aspects of OWL also outlining some key  
differences to other technologies. IMHO this indeed harmonizes the  
overall presentation and might help the average primer-reader to get a  
more "holistic" idea about OWL 2.

Best regards,
  Sebastian
