In today's telecon we discussed the desire to make the reference document 
more
completely realize its function as a reference for the syntax of the 
language.

I want to make a suggestion that makes more concrete the comments I 
already
made in this direction in my review of this document at [1].
This review mentions that many sections do already contain more or less 
complete
syntax descriptions, in the form of examples, but that in four important 
sections 
such syntax descriptions are missing:
class elements, class expressions, property restrictions, property 
elements.

A simple way to fill this gap would be to simply copy several syntactic 
examples from 
the Guide document to these four sections.  I mean only the syntax, not 
the
ontology discussions surrounding it, of course.
Then the effort that went/goes in these examples is used twice.
Although the Guide itself is not convenient to use as a reference for 
language syntax, 
several of its examples could also be used in the reference document.
