[Draft Response for LC Comment 65:] MS8

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your eighth message
  <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-owl-wg/2009Mar/0000.html>
on the OWL 2 Web Ontology Language last call drafts.
 
Datatype declarations are currently in the functional syntax for two
reasons:

1/ For symmetry, allowing all entities to be declared.

2/ To better capture RDF graphs with typing triples.

As well, the working group is currently contemplating adding the ability
to have named data ranges, which would be non-built-in datatypes.
Declaring datatypes would form part of the support for this new feature.

Please acknowledge receipt of this email to
<mailto:public-owl-wg@w3.org> (replying to this email should
suffice). In your acknowledgment please let us know whether or not you
are satisfied with the working group's response to your comment. 

Regards,
Peter F. Patel-Schneider
on behalf of the W3C OWL Working Group
