2) OWL name (5 min)

Decision of Jan 3:

Chair's decision to revisit Jan 3 decision:

PROPOSAL to resolve this naming issue as follows:
We call our language "the Web Ontology Language OWL".
- "Web Ontology Language" is a much better term
   than "Ontology Web Language"
- the WDs have used the name "The Web Ontology Language OWL"
   for some time now and no serious objections have been recorded
- those wanting a rationale for the relation between the full name and the
   acronym may be referred to Winnie the Pooh:
