Hmm.

To endorse the language described in this document requires:

For OWL Lite:
- prohibit owl:DatatypeProperty and owl:ObjectProperty
- not use datatypes (yet)
- not use owl:AllDifferent
- allow owl:inverseOf, owl:TransitiveProperty, owl:SymmetricProperty,
  and owl:InverseFunctionalProperty on any property
- apply restrictions to classes (somehow)

For OWL DL:
- prohibit owl:DatatypeProperty and owl:ObjectProperty
- require that all properties belong to either owl:DatatypeProperty and
  owl:ObjectProperty 
- not use datatypes (yet)
- not use owl:AllDifferent
- not allow owl:oneOf for data values
- allow owl:inverseOf, owl:TransitiveProperty, owl:SymmetricProperty,
  and owl:InverseFunctionalProperty on any property
- apply restrictions to classes (somehow)

I do not think that these are good ideas.
