Jim's email yesterday said "We have decided to do a new release of most of our
documents for various reasons.  We'd like to include Overview if it
  can be done in time.  To be in same batch would require Dan gets it by Monday -
we agreed as group documents
  probably wouldn't reflect the "sameClassAs" change, but would meet other major
comments raised in reviews (your only
  outstanding one is the datatype section issue I raised - for this version you
could delete while we decide what to say for
  the LC version,"

If you want to suggest a very short section for inclusion that is fine.

The email I was working from from jim said:

"The consensus was that since it is easy to create certain kinds of
intersections in Owl Lite, should include owl:intersectionOf in the
Owl Lite vocabulary list in the Overview document.    The discussion
of this feature can look liek the discussion of the other features
that have restrictions in lite - i.e. the paragraph just says
smething like "can only be used with named classes" (oe however that
is made clear in the Overview)."

Since we have had discussions about trying to make it easy for frame systems,  I
expected that that was taken into account with the use of named classes.

This is not a hard thing to fix in the overview if it the decision to have both -
I just dont want to do another update if I did the first one right yesterday in my
round of changes that attempted to address the email I received.
