Frank, Deb -
  As neither of you were able to attend today's telecon, I took an 
action to make a request of the two of you with respect to your 
document.  Basically, it appears that the WG consensus was that the 
feature (overview) document doesn't quite reflect the correct status 
of the language with respect to intersectionOf, and that we would 
prefer if it were fixed in the overview document, rather than 
changing AS&S or other re-engineering of the language.

  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).

  If others on the WG who were on the call wish to explain this better 
than I did, or to make specific wording changes, please let me know.

  Note: this reflects a consensus that this document change is 
desirable, not a reopening of an issue or a change in what is and 
isn't in Lite (as it is now normatively defined in the AS&S document).
