Ok, I was not sure about this because there are (syntactic) criteria
for what OWL 2 RL ontologies are, so it just occured to me that OWL RL
is the only profile that does not use this criteria for the input
ontologies. By no means I want to suggest changing this if that was
intended and what you say makes sense to me. In this case, we should
definitely leave it as it is.

Definitely. I just said that because I saw that all the other profiles
use their respective restrictions and I was afraid that we overlooked
something for OWL RL. I really just wanted to make sure that this is
