Guus,

I think this is a very useful beginning for the GUIDE group. UML is
probably known by many more people who are prospective developers and
users of OWL* (or whatever the language will be called) and showing a
rough translation between OWL* and UML is important. In your document, I
also see placeholders for limitations, etc., and I consider these
important too: the lack of a formalized semantics for UML, for example,
though that may be changing. What will OWL* give you that UML (or any
other language) cannot?
