To: WebOnt WG <www-webont-wg@w3.org>
Enclosed are some (personal, non-chair) thoughts about results we should
expect from GUIDE activities.

1. Presentation syntaxes

Non-normative, typically appendices of the main language document

Formats to be released at Recommendation time include at least:
(assuming OWL level 1 will cover the "frame stuff)

* XML presentation syntax: level 1 and level 2

* UML presentation syntax: level 1
For first sketch see:
http://www.swi.psy.uva.nl/usr/Schreiber/docs/owl-uml/owl-uml.html

2. Language primer / walkthrough

- Even if this is part of LANG, GUIDE should participate in it
- Requirement: should include realistic ontology examples (no toy
things)
- Use examples from use cases

3. How-to-do-it document

Guidelines on how to handle common modelling issues in OWL:
* OWL and RDF Schema (issues involved in moving from one to the other)
* datatypes (how to link to XML Schema)
* default knowledge  (e.g. use a metaclass mechanism)
* part-whole relations (e.g. use subproperty mechanism)
* ontology mapping (e.g. how to use the EquivalentTo constructs)
* defined classes (when to use)
* (...

Feedback very welcome,
Guus
