Dear Masahide,
thanks a lot for that quick license update! I am sure it will make your 
work even more useful. By the way, we are currently trying to derive an 
XSL stylesheet from it that can be directly referenced from inside an 
OWL ontology in RDF/XML-ABBREV so that a browser will render the 
document correctly while any http request to the base URI will always 
return plain RDF/XML (i.e., we need no content negotiation).
