I'm happy with that as sufficient justification for focussing on this 
case, but lets not call it 'OWL-DL', but something like OWL-Abox. 
Clearly, this case is not obtained just by doing "simple"//"OWL-DL" 
in the SPARQL definitions, with any wording of those definitions, so 
there is still some work to do or at least to check. I don't trust 
myself to be the judge for exactly how to couch the definitions to 
describe this case accurately. Can you do that?
