Hi Jun,
Good points! I have tried to address them in the updated owl file. Some
comments are interleaved:

There are also some other object properties appear odd to me:

> Sorry, this has been renamed to hadQualifiedAssociation with range defined
as Association (subclass of QualifiedInvolvement)

QualifiedInvolvement to an Entity.


> - wasEndedBy and wasStartedBy do not have domain or range definitions

> Since they are sub-properties of wasAssociatedWith, which has defined
domain and range, they inherit the corresponding domain and range.

Yes, the majority of these are properties are to model the DM "common
relations" Section 6. I believe many of them are under discussion and some
may be removed (e.g. summary).

Thanks.
