Here's some input for item of the agenda:

> 5) LANG working drafts (6-10 min.)
>
> Short discussion on public comments received sofar.

The following is my summary of the reactions so far
(see [1] for the full exchanges)

- a request for a way to state a local "unique names assumption"
(which is indeed on our requirements list)

- a request for a way in which an ontology can contain its own identifier
(which is not currently on our issue list)

- a request for a way to annotate individual statements with authorship, and 
not only entire ontologies. This is already on our issue list.

- a request for human-readable/multi-lingual labels for identifiers
(which is already on our issue list)

- two comments that OWL Lite seems to sit well with the requirements for 
data-integration use-cases, plus a request to move hasValue from Full OWL to 
OWL Lite based on experience in such use cases.

- a conclusion that the omission of Nothing from OWL Lite was an error
(since it can already be expressed anyway).

- two comments asking for better indication of differences between
RDFS, OWL Lite, Full OWL and DAML+OIL, plus more justification of the choices 
for these differences.

- a clarification/bug-fix concerning lists/collections

Frank.
