Hmm.  I guess that Section 5.3, OWL DL, could be labelled as informative.
If no one complains, I'll make this change.

Aaah, you mean &rarr; 
I'm not sure why you don't like this symbol, but I'll take it out.

I think that the correspondence theorem and proof are still OK.  They still
disallow annotations and imports.  When there is agreement on annotations
and imports I'll update the theorem and proof.
