I am of the opinion that B1 B2 does not work with the current RDFS semantics.

Well, I'm not prepared to have it supplant other things that I need to do in

I am very leery of making changes to the OWL semantics at this stage.  I
would be willing to spend some effort to see whether a change would be
work, but I am not optimistic.  Just consider the problems with last-minute
changes to RDF.
