I'm taking the liberty of forwarding this from the 
public-webont-comments list because it impacts CR exit criteria.  In 
particular, his first issue is an owl:imports case - and if he's 
wrong, we should make sure it is clear why in one of our documents 
(if one person gets it wrong, others might, and owl:imports was 
called out by the Director as something we need to pay attention to). 
Second one is Lite/DL issue.
  Sean - can you check output of your species checker on these and let us know?

>>  All,
>>  I’m one of the developers for the MINDSWAP Pellet 
>>project(http://www.mindswap.org/2003/pellet/index.shtml) working on 
>>the species validation portion of the program.  I’m currently going 
>>through the OWL test cases one by one and making sure that Pellet 
>>can correctly find the species of an OWL document.  I’ve found two 
>>test cases I believe contain errors in the species declaration of 
>>one of their constituent documents.
>>  1)
>>  Test case:
>>  http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/imports/Manifest001
>>  Premise document:
>>  http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/imports/premises001
>>  In the manifest, the premise document is declared an OWL Full 
>>document.  When I first looked at the premise document, that seemed 
>>to be the correct species because ont:Man is used, but not defined, 
>>making it an OWL Full document.  But when you take into 
>>consideration the owl:imports statement in the file, you would 
>>merge the graph for that document with the imported document and 
>>the resulting graph would have the definition for ont:Man present 
>>making the premises001 file an OWL Lite document and not an OWL 
>>Full document.  Thus, I believe the species on the test case is 
>>incorrect and needs to be changed.
>>  2)
>>  Test case:
>>  http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/miscellaneous/Manifest102
>>  Input document:
>>  http://www.w3.org/2002/03owlt/miscellaneous/consistent102
>>  The manifest declares the input as an OWL DL document.  In section 
>>8.3 of the OWL Web Ontology Language Reference (regarding use of 
>>owl:intersectionOf in OWL Lite documents) it says:
>>  “owl:intersectionOf be used only on lists of length greater than 
>>one that contain only named classes and restrictions”
>>  This would appear to be the case for the input document, the 
>>object of the owl:intersectionOf triple is a list of length greater 
>>than one containing only restrictions.  I think the input document 
>>is an OWL Lite document and the test case should be changed 
>>  Thank you for your time.
