Right now, latest RDFS specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-schema/) 
in the stage of Working Draft. Latest OWL specifications have been into 
the stage of Candidate Recommendation. According to W3C Process Document 
(http://www.w3.org/2003/06/Process-20030618/tr.html#Reports), a Working 
Draft is a document that W3C has published for review by the community, 
including W3C Members, the public, and other technical organizations. A 
Candidate Recommendation is a document that W3C believes has been widely 
reviewed and satisfies the Working Group's technical requirements. W3C 
publishes a Candidate Recommendation to gather implementation experience.

Considering that OWL uses several constructs from RDFS (domain, range, 
subClass, subPropertyOf, etc), I wonder if it is impossible to recommend 
OWL specifications before RDFS?
