I think it's great to see this coming together...
some specific questions about the status...

This carries Pat's name (as well as Ian's an Franks) without
qualification, but I'd like confirmation that he's seen (or
otherwise agreed to) this version.

i.e. is it a candidate for discharging this action?
"ACTION Peter Patel-Schneider/Pat Hayes: draft OWL semantics, including
the "2 technical bits" [should also address issues 4.6, 5.9, 5.22]"
 -- http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/WebOnt/ftf4#Semantic

I don't see 5.9 nor 5.22 in "1.2. Stances Taken on OWL Issues"
http://www-db.research.bell-labs.com/user/pfps/owl/semantics.html#1.2

but I understand from your message of
31 Oct 2002 13:40:49 -0500 that this draft *does*
(propose to) address issue 5.9.

And this draft does address 5.22-owl:Class-still-needed
to my satisfaction, in (among other places)
"4.1. Definition of OWL Knowledge Bases in Triple Form"
http://www-db.research.bell-labs.com/user/pfps/owl/mapping.html#4.1
