suddenly so quiet here :-)

Re-reading the OWL spec I found that owl:sameAs has domain & range = 
owl:Thing.
So any two concepts which are not derived from owl:Thing cannot be 
connected by owl:sameAs.
OWL object properties are not a super market of social interreferencing :-)

However, isn't everything an owl:Thing?
I have to confess, reading the specs, I am not that sure.
Am I an owl:Nothing?

Humble regards,
Thomas
