I think the key point at this stage is
"People generate interest in a particular topic"
Personally, I suspect OWL 1.0 needs a fair bit of deployment experience 
before anyone can say what OWL 2.0 should be like. But I suppose in 
SWBPDWG or elsewhere we may end up adding to the postponed issues with 
OWL, and adding to our knowledge of how to address these, sufficiently 
to make OWL 2.0 worthwhile.
