I noticed that the original posting on this topic is not linked into the 
description.

I suggest the following update on this page

the topic could be:

Closing Roles.
Deborah McGuinness to draft.  An initial limited description (with 
follow-up discussion) is available from
the mailing list posting
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-swbp-wg/2004Oct/0052.html

One of the benefits of working with a language that allows for open 
world reasoning, is that reasoners do not make closed world 
assumptions.  Thus, it is sometimes important to state that there will 
be no additional values filling a slot so that reasoners can make 
inferences based on current values and their properties.
This note discusses approaches to the problem and provides examples.
