I went in and upgraded the third point of the response to talk about
another reason for including owl:real, namely modelling hygene.

I also put in more about the mess in RDF wrt empty lexical spaces and
added a point that the WG would be prepared to make the lexical space of
owl:real the same as the one for owl:rational, even though it is a
slight extra burden, as long as that is the sole remaining problem with
owl:real.

Unfortunately timing is going to be very tricky here.  The Working Group
will probably have to vote to change the definition of owl:real in this
way if that is what ends up being the case.  Someone should socialize
this response with Jeremy to see if it helps at all.  The other negative
point is that it ties owl:real and owl:rational together and probably
requires a change to the "At Risk" sections.
