TITLE:  owl:Class still needed

DESCRIPTION:

  The introduction of daml:Class as a subclass of rdfs:Class
  was largely motivated by the fact that rdfs:Class
  prohibited cycles.  The W3C RDF Core WG recently removed
  this restriction.  Is there still a need for a separate
  owl:Class?

  Issue 5.1 [1] also discusses this distinction, but is more
  appropriately focused on the disjointness of
  ObjectProperty and DatatypeProperty.
