By accident I visited the RDF home page (http://www.w3.org/RDF/) and
noticed that the RDF suite of specificaitons included the OWL requirements,
OWL reference, OWL abstact syntax, OWL feature synopsis, and OWL test
cases.

I am unhappy with this characterisation of the OWL document, and of the Web
Ontology working group in general.  The work that went into the design of
OWL was part of the W3C Semantic Web activity, not part of RDF.  I ask that
it not be mischaracterised as part of RDF.
