2.0 Issue clean up (Unique names Assumption) - 10 min

On Dec 19 the WG accepted Dan C's proposal to postpone the 
UniqueNames issue but accept a language feature called oneOfDistinct.
However, Peter P-S noted an issue with its semantics, and asked that 
we instead reconsider an earlier proposal to use an  "allDifferent" 
(or AllDistinct) construct:
In the thread that followed Dan C expressed an ability to live with 
this, and several WG members supported it.
   Chair will therefore reopen and allow discussion of this issue to 
determine whether to replace Dan's solution with the earlier one (and 
what to call the construct)

3.0 Document Status

REMINDER - reviews of documents due to WG archive Jan 2.
(Thanks for the many already sent - see archives)

REMINDER - Final pre-f2f versions of all documents were originally

(Thanks for those already done - see archives)

For each document editors will discuss current status and what main 
changes were made since last telecon. 

3.1 Requirements (Jeff H)

ACTION on Jeff to update requirements doc to make Unique Names an
objective rather than a requirement.

ACTION on JeffH: check postponed issues don't affect requirements doc
and that all requirements now met

ACTION (cont): DebMcG/Change feature doc in accordance with 5.19 resolution
(using MikeD's text)

3.4 Semantics (Peter P-S)

4.0 Update by Jeremy on Status of TEST and plans for f2f

5.0 Issue clean up (5.13 Mime type)

Per discussion on Dec 19, Mike D. suggested we add new subClasses of 
owl:ontology for the three langauge types - this did not recieve 
support in the form offered, but was left unresolved.  Mike has made 
a new proposal in:
but it has not received support on the mailing list.
   The chair therefore proposes we consider issue 5.13 closed, and we 
don't add a new language feature for explicitly distinguishing the 
subsets in our namespace document or in the MIME type,  The chair 
notes that the WG has previously discussed having an on-line FAQ 
where suggestions can be made for things like this, and hopes 
creating one will be a post-Last Call action taken by this WG)
