Ah, in section 5.2, yes.  That kind of text really belongs only in the
Status of the Document, I think, or at least linked to/from it.  I
didn't notice it when I paraphrased Peter's SOTD to write something
rather different:

   "Additionally, the design of OWL depends in part on the design of
   RDF, and at this time the relevant RDF specifications are only
   Working Drafts. It is therefore possible that unanticipated changes
   in RDF may require changes to OWL. This document is current with
   respect to RDF Editor's Draft changes made up to 7 August 2003." 

I wonder which is correct, or if by "current with", Peter meant to be
including the caveat you mention.
