Dear Michael,

Thank you for your sixth 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 three
reasons:

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

2/ To better capture RDF graphs with typing triples.

3/ To allow for named dataranges.

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
