I don't understand your line of argument.
The design criterion for OWL Light was ease of implementation (and perhaps 
ease of use/learning crept in for some of us), but "frequency of use" was 
never a criterion for designing OWL Light.

So if people use feature X often, but feature X is hard to implement, then 
these people will simply end up using OWL DL. I see no harm in that?

(Clearly, the debate on the ease of implementation is entirely relevant,
but arguments about frequency of use seem to me to be irrelevant for this
