Hi Peter,

You raise a last call review comment on RDF Schema (and RDF Semantics) in 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003JanMar/0124.html

...noting that there are apparent divergences between these two 
specifications. Thanks for the careful comparision of our documents. To help
us track this, I believe we should open an issue on 
'schema/semantics divergence' to keep track of this. 

Brian, could you open an issue please, unless there is another existing 
issue under which the comments in 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003JanMar/0124.html could be filed.

I also note editorially that the language in Schema that says
'_the_ rdfs:range of ...' may be contentious, since there may well turn out
 to be other true 'range' assertions about our properties (perhaps 
asserted by other working groups). Maybe OWL(Full?) already does this?
Perhaps we should take more care to write 'an rdfs:range ...' instead of 
'the rdfs:range ...'.


Thanks again for your comments,

Dan
