Hi all,
I have committed a new version of the entailment regimes document:

There is now a description of the OWL RDF-Based Semantics incl. the
OWL 2 RL profile. The OWL 2 RL profile can also be used with Direct
Semantics, so I have added that there too. Further I have added a
section about aggregates with RDF(S) entailment, addressing at least
parts of Axel's comments (no owl:sameAs discussion yet for
aggregation). I also defined the behaviour for inconsistent graphs
more clearly because the previous spec didn't define the scoping graph
in the case of inconsistencies. It was rather assumed that the scoping
graph is still equivalent to the active graph, so that systems can
just use the graph as is modulo bnode renaming, but that allowed
infinite answers for inconsistent graphs. I now use Axel's suggestion
for condition C2 and require not only bindings for variables inn
subject position to occur in the input, but require this for all
variables. This also solves the OWL RDF-Based semantics problem where
you can have infinite answers from owl:topDataProperty, which relates
an individual to all data values. Now all RDF-Based regimes (RDF,
RDFS, OWL 2 RDF-Based (for OWL Full and OWL RL)) use the same
definitions, which is nice IMO.
