I did not mean that this should be stated in this way in the Primer. What I
was about was that the Primer should not make assertions that are in tension
with parts of OWL 2.

Having said this, I have no problem with making informal sounding statements
of the form: "a class /represents/ a set|extension|whatever" (the
introduction of the RDF-Based Semantics uses just such kinds of statement).
It just shouldn't sound as if a class name is directly interpreted by a set
(but such a rigorous formulation isn't necessary/useful in the Primer,
anyway, IMO).
