Many thanks for the "heads up", Bijan.

Many thanks too for this note, Joanne.

This is exactly the point I was trying to get across.  We on the  
HCLSIG need to be alert to what is happening here and to vet the new  
OWL 1.1 additions in the context of what we collectively recognize as  
HCLSIG requirements.  We must also provide our feedback, as Holger  
and others pointed out as well.

I would also add once again that the OWL-ED 2006 paper from presented  
< 2 weeks ago by Matthew Horridge and Dmitry Tsarkov - "Supporting  
Early Adoption of OWL 1.1 with Protege-OWL and FaCT++" (http://owl- 
workshop.man.ac.uk/acceptedLong/submission_15.pdf) gives a  
wonderfully constructed explanation for how and why the OWL 1.1  
features have been integrated into ProtegeOWL v4a and FaCT++.
