Daniel,

In http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003JanMar/0384.html
you requested the RDF Core WG consider the creation of an rdfs:Schema class to
the RDF Schema specification. This was recorded as an RDF Core Last Call 
issue 'eikon-01', http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/20030123-issues/#eikon-01

The working group considered your proposal, and discussed it in the 
2003-05-02 telecon ([1]). While we did not decide to create a new 
class called 'rdfs:Schema', the group accepts your case that a class 
to support such functionality is needed and useful. We decided to
endorse the use of the owl:Ontology class (specified by the Web Ontology
WG), rather than create a new, similar class. 

This is a proposal to close RDF Core LC issue 'eikon-01', with the
resolution to use owl:Ontology where rdfs:Schema was proposed. Could you 
please indicate by replying to this message, copying
www-rdf-comments@w3.org, whether this response is satisfactory.

Thanks again for your contribution to this work.

Dan
