Hmm... you've reduced the options from 3 (XML, RDF, OWL)
to 2... I guess I don't object strongly, but it seems
worthwhile, to me, to note that folks can use app/xml
if they just want to ship OWL around without really
asserting it.

I still think this entailment parameter isn't worth doing.

I suggest striking it, on the grounds that I gave
in my message of 13Nov:

"keep in mind that we'll need test cases and implementations of
this entailment parameter; I'm not in a good postion to
supply them."

I haven't seen anybody else supply test cases or
implementation experience meanwhile.
