As I recall, those present didn't feel that B1 and B2 were
clearly worth the trouble. I gather recent drafts of S&AS
describe a design that requires repeating, rather than sharing,
big chunks of triple-syntax in some cases. The main proponent
seemed to be Jeremy, but he wasn't there.

But neither did we feel we had sufficient evidence to
decide that B1 and B2 were not the way to go. So
we didn't close the issue.

Re F.1, there was a lot of hesitation to invest further
in owl:DataRange. There was a proposal to strike it
altogether, in fact...

Proposed simplification of datatype expressions

The proposal came out shortly before the telcon,
so we weren't ready to decide on it.

But it has had some discussion since then, I see.
