In January, we agreed a definition of a "complete OWL DL consistency checker", 
if we had evidence that such a thing existed, and/or that more than one would 
exist in the future (and the WG was satisfied that they would be practically 
usable, rather than essentially theoretical exercises) then we could respond 
with a message that indicated that, and that we thought that that was 
sufficient to justify the DL level.

If we don't have such evidence then I agree with

(A danger is that if OWL DL is tainted then the whole OWL brand is tainted).
