Hi

I propose to change the sentence: "Please note that we will have a more
extensive documentation of the rationale behind this design in the NF&R as
well as some discussion in the primer. The working group will contact you
when they reach last call to see if the overall solution meets your
concerns"
by

"Please note that we have added more extensive documentation of hasKey
feature in the Syntax, NF&R and a better explanation in the RDF-Based
Semantics. The rationale behind this design from a theoretical perspective
is summarized in the section Theoretical Perspective" of the NF&R (see
http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/New_Features_and_Rationale#F9:_Key). We will
have also some discussion in the primer.

I'm not sure about the first sentence, "The working group was unsure ..."
and prefer to let others to clarify it.
