My apologies to have been silent for a few days, I am on a long trip in
Australia with only occasional access to the Web...

This is actually not a change v.a.v. the official version, but I found
this small remark:

OWL 2 RL''' enables the implementation of polynomial time reasoning
algorithms using rule-extended database technologies

I must admit I missed the term 'rule-extended database technologies' in
the last version. I am not sure why a reference to database technologies
is necessary here. RL can be implemented by rule technologies. Isn't
that all? (It can be made _even more efficient_ with a combination of
database technologies to handle, for example, sameAs, but that is
another matter...).

But this is a minor thing. Otherwise thumbs up!
