Thanks for kindly pointing these out to me. I am aware of most of them
as well of many others besides these. However, my goal is not a *survey*
on combining rules and ontologies, but to propose seeing data models as
constraints when used in rule-based schemes. Do these "missed" references
do so? (I do not think so - but I will check again.) At any rate, you
mean "crucial" in what sense? Do you imply that the paper is pointless
without them? Does the fact that I "missed" these references invalidate
any of the contents? Or make its message pointless? Or does "crucial"
mean that these papers are all of so momentous importance that no paper
on rules for the SW ought never to "leave home without it"? For me,
a "crucial" miss is a *serious* flaw. Is my paper seriously flawed?

Anyway, thanks for reading through the thick of my slab so quickly.

Kind regards,


PS/ This confirms that one always starts reading a paper with the most
     important section: the references! ;-)
