I wonder whether it has been proved that the proposed axiomatisation - 
restricted to the OWL-DL fragment - is proved sound and complete with 
respect to the published normative model theoretic semantics of OWL-DL.
In other words: how can we be sure that if we use your axiomatisation 
for just OWL-DL we get the same behaviour as if we were just using a 
standard DL reasoner (already proved to be sound and complete wrt the 
published normative model theoretic semantics of OWL-DL)?
